BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Two men have pleaded not guilty to murder in connection with a shooting that took place last week in north Bakersfield.
Emil Alvary, 38, and Angelo Rodriguez, 24, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon. A Superior Court judge ordered them held without bail and set their next hearing for Oct. 19.
The two are accused of killing 45-year-old Eddie Raymond Bustamente Sr. He was shot Sept. 27 in the 3500 block of Jewett Avenue and was declared dead at the scene, police said.
