The patriarch of the Moorhead family accused of running a sham drug deal resulting in one man's death, formally entered a not guilty plea Thursday in court.

Arlen Clapper stands accused of murder in the stabbing death of 26-year-old Rolandas House in south Fargo this past March.

Prior to Thursday's proceedings, Clapper's 22-year-old daughter, Tamara  pleaded guilty to her role in the crime.

She's been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Addtionally, another man, 19-year-old Wade Garrett is now serving a prison sentence for the murder as well.

Garrett is working with law enforcement to convict Arlen and his son, Alexander, in the murder plot.
