GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A man sentenced in 1990 to 20 years in prison for shooting the police chief in the northeastern North Dakota town of Emerado could face another 20-year term if convicted on drug charges.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that 50-year-old Dale Densmore has pleaded not guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine on a farmstead near Larimore, along with other drug counts.

Densmore was arrested at the farmstead last May after a three-hour standoff with police. He has been in jail since.

Densmore pleaded guilty in 1990 to attempted murder after shooting Emerado Police Chief Eric Stewart in the face and head. Stewart survived.
