3 of 4 accused in Fairfield teen’s shooting death enter pleas

By From page A3 | March 12, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Three of the four suspects in the Feb. 15 shooting death of 16-year-old Naomy Rojas pleaded not guilty Monday to conspiracy and murder charges.

Jovon N. Granado, 24, Eric A. Rico, 19, and Jesus Rodriguez, 22, all of Fairfield, were ordered to return to court April 25 when a date may be scheduled for a probable cause hearing. The fourth suspect, Robert F. Dishman, 21, postponed entering a plea, saying his family was still trying to hire him a lawyer.

All four suspects are in jail without bail, according to Deputy District Attorney Krishna Abrams, who is prosecuting the case.

Rojas was fatally shot behind a Phoenix Drive apartment complex. Police believe the four suspects went to the Phoenix Drive apartment complex to confront a person who was with Rojas. Shots were fired around 1:20 a.m. and Rojas was killed. Police said they do not believe she was the target.

    Only fitting deal would be to tie a rope around their neck and pull that lever.

    In all this information, where is the person that was with naomy rojas. Why isn't he standing in trial. Why did he leave her there laying with a gun shot.

    i 100% agree with you! WHERE DID HER "FRIEND/FRIENDS" GO??.... AND WHY HAVE THEY NOT BEEN BROUGHT TO TRIAL ALONG WITH THE OTHERS?? From all of the gossip around town, Ive gathered that there was A TON MORE to that night than the police are willing to share. If ANY PARTS of the gossip are true, (when it comes to gossip, there USUALLY are SOME TRUTHFUL PARTS), then there is a HUGE possibility that the 4men they currently have are innocent. EVERYONE SEEMS SO READY TO JUMP AT SAYING WHO DID IT, TO SIMPLY FEEL JUSTICE, WHEN REALLY, WE ALL DONT KNOW ALL THE FACTS! I UNDERSTAND THAT EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW THAT THEY GOT "HIM", AND THAT HE WILL PAY.... BUT DONT YOU WANT THE PERSON WHO ACTUALLY COMMITTED THE CRIME TO PAY FOR IT!!!??? Personally, I would feel a LOT more content if they would find the other people... Her "so-called friends"... and ask THEM a few questions!!! After all, THEY LEFT HER... why is it that they also couldn't have been who caused that girl such a short life!???! MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT PERSON!\------ it is more than unfair that that girl lost her life at such a young age, and for such a stupid reason... and it is also unfair to allow a murder to run free while another man takes an undeserving punishment. ....makes me sick to think about it. FIND THOSE "FRIENDS" OF HERS!
