Michael J. Hill, who served 28 years in prison for manslaughter, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Niagara County Court to charges of invading a Niagara Falls home and stabbing the resident.
Hill, now held on $150,000 bail, was indicted for first-degree assault and two counts of first-degree burglary. Assistant District Attorney Doreen M. Hoffmann said Hill on Oct. 1 entered a 12th Street home and stabbed a man several times, most seriously in the abdomen.
Hill, 46, was released Aug. 24 after serving a 25-year sentence for first-degree manslaughter, plus another three years for possession of prison contraband. He and another man pleaded guilty in the fatal shooting of a Rochester man during a robbery attempt in Niagara Falls on Aug. 26, 1989.
