Lillo Harrell, 29, and Uel Pearson, 34, pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in the death of 22-year-old Rontavious McKinley.

They also pleaded not guilty to attempted first-degree murder charges in the shooting of 18-year-old Sharonda Simmons.

Both men asked for a reduction in bond, but the judge said it was not likely due to the severity of the charges.
