LAKE CHARLES, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A defense attorney representing a man indicted on a manslaughter charge says he will request a bond that reflects the man's charges.

When 54-year-old Michael Anthony Brown, of Lake Charles, was arrested in June, he was booked with second-degree murder, but a grand jury returned the lesser count of manslaughter.

Brown is being held on $1.5 million bond at Calcasieu Correctional Center. The bond was set following Brown's arrest.

At his arraignment Monday, Brown entered a not guilty plea and requested a jury trial. A trial date of Feb. 3, 2014, was set.

Authorities allege Brown killed his roommate, 42-year-old Gregory Bryant, on June 22.

Bryant was found lying on the floor of the home with a stab wound to the chest.
