Parker M. Bachtold and Shalin E. Alltus, both 16, pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree aggravated murder, first-degree robbery, theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of theft of a firearm and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm-juvenile in possession of a firearm.
The charges stem from the slaying of Alltus’ 39-year-old uncle, Patrick M. Alltus.
