CHAMBERLAIN – A man accused of killing a Mitchell woman last month has pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter charges.

Thirty-six-year old Kent Gene Davidson is accused of killing 26-year-old Crystal Schulz. Her body was found March 14 in a shed at her mother’s residence in rural Chamberlain.

Davidson was arraigned Monday at the Brule County Courthouse. He was shackled and wearing an orange jail jumpsuit with a white bulletproof vest under a blue hooded sweat shirt.

Davidson was indicted last month on charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder and manslaughter. A fourth charge alleges Davidson possessed a firearm while committing a felony.

Davidson requested a court-appointed attorney, and Circuit Judge Bruce Anderson appointed Sioux Falls attorney Clint Sargent to continue representing Davidson.
