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.
