GavelTwo men have pleaded not guilty to various charges stemming from the slaying of a Lincoln man last year.

Adrian Casares and Miguel Castillo entered their pleas during their arraignments on Wednesday.

Neither has been charged with the homicide in the killing of 25-year-old Tyler Schoenrock. He was shot three times.

Casares is charged with terroristic threats and a weapons count. Police say he threatened Schoenrock during a confrontation late Dec. 29 at a Lincoln apartment.

Castillo is charged with being an accessory to murder. He’s told investigators that Casares shot Schoenrock when the three of them rode into the countryside on the north side of Lincoln, where Schoenrock’s body was found on Dec. 30.

Their trial dates haven’t been set.
