LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- The two men police say are responsible for the death of a local teen over the theft of an iPad pleaded not guilty to the crime.

Jacob Dismont, 18, and Michael Solid, 21, entered their pleas this morning at the Regional Justice Center. They were indicted this month in the May 16 death of Marcos Arenas, a Bonanza High School freshman.

Police say Dismont and Solid were seen on video at a convenience store following Arenas and his friend just moments before they tried to rob the boys.

Police say Solid was driving while Dismont jumped out and tried to snatch the iPad Arenas was holding. But Arenas refused to let go and was dragged underneath the car as it drove away.

Prosecutor Brad Turner said the defendants had a taste for robbing Apple products.

Both had connections to previous cases of robbing iPhones.

Judge Linda Bell has set a trial date of Aug. 4, 2014.
