GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A Minneapolis man has pleaded not

guilty to assaulting a pregnant woman and her mother during a

domestic dispute in the northeast North Dakota city of Grand Forks

last month.

Thirty-four-year-old Jason Lyons is charged with misdemeanor

assault and felony aggravated assault, and could get more than five

years in prison if convicted.

Authorities accuse Lyons of hitting and kicking the stomach of a

pregnant woman in a Grand Forks apartment, then attacking the

woman's mother and knocking her unconscious.
