A Knott County man accused of severely beating another man outside a Hazard motel was arraigned Monday.
Thomas Slone pleaded not guilty. A judge also denied bond. Slone is accused of assaulting Ricky Collins in the parking lot of the Daniel Boone Motel.
Collins is still in the U.K. Medical Center in serious, but stable condition.
Police believe the men got into a fight over a family dispute.
A preliminary hearing will be held next week.
