Two teens plead not guilty in Basic High School teacher slaying

The two brothers accused of killing and robbing a Basic High School choir teacher pleaded not guilty in District Court on Wednesday.

Jose Delatorre, 18, and Juan Aguirre, 17, pleaded not guilty in the December slaying of 32-year-old Matthew Cox.

The teenagers were indicted by a grand jury last week on charges of murder, robbery, first-degree kidnapping, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary and grand larceny of a vehicle. Cox was Aguirre’s teacher.

Authorities said the brothers stole a Wii video game system, some DVDs and other electronics from Cox.

Their trial is scheduled for Nov. 9.
