A Salt Lake man pleaded not guilty Friday to charges he killed his roommate.

Michael J. Wimble, 33, is charged with second-degree murder in the April 13 strangulation of Ronnie Dyer, 42, whose body was found in an apartment at 228 S. Third East.

Third District Judge David Young scheduled a trial for Sept. 8.

Wimble and Dyer lived together at the apartment complex and were the targets of complaints by residents who told police the two were fighting.
