SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 22-year-old man has denied helping conceal the slaying of a Sioux City man whose body was dumped in South Dakota.

The Sioux City Journal says Ricardo Vital entered a written plea of not guilty on Wednesday to a charge of being an accessory after the fact. He's accused of driving a car used to move the body of 20-year-old Adrian Rojas-Hernandez. Police also say Vital cleaned up blood and disposed of clothing and bedding.

The partially burned body was found in a roadside ditch in South Dakota's Lincoln County on Oct. 27. Investigators determined that Rojas-Hernandez had been fatally shot in Sioux City.

Police arrested 20-year-old Martin Castellanos on Oct. 31. He's charged with murder. Castellanos' attorney didn't immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press.
