THE BRONX - One of two men charged in the shooting death of a Bronx teenager has pleaded not guilty.

Eric Landron appeared before a judge in the murder of 17-year-old Alphonza Bryant on Fox Street back in April. Raul Pacheco is also accused in his death, but was not in court because his attorney got caught up in another trial.

Landron and Pacheco are being charged together, but Landron's attorney is planning to file a motion to separate the two cases by July 6.

A judge will have a few weeks to consider the motion before proceeding.
