2 men plead not guilty in death of teen over iPad

Two men accused of killing a high school student who wouldn’t give up his iPad during a robbery pleaded not guilty Thursday.

Jacob Dismont, 18, and Michael Solid, 21, face single counts of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery and murder with use of a deadly weapon in the death of 15-year-old Bonanza High School student Marcos Arenas in May.

Arenas was run over by an SUV as he tried to hold on to the iPad as the two suspects fled, authorities said.

Dismont and Solid will go to trial Aug. 4.
