SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A man sentenced to 90 years in prison for killing his stepfather has petitioned the court in Minnehaha County to change his name because he wants a fresh start.

Thirty-five-year-old Daniel Charles was 14 when he was sent to prison in 2000 for first-degree murder in Meade County. He was accused of putting a rifle to his stepfather's head and pulling the trigger at a ranch near Opal. He told law enforcement at the time he didn't know the gun was loaded.

The Argus Leader reports Charles’ petition says he wants to change his name to Rameus Tiberius Aryada to start a new life with an adult identity.

The South Dakota Department of Corrections lists Charles' earliest parole eligibility as March 2045.
