The teen charged with murder in the death of 17-year-old Rohan Burke pleaded not guilty before a judge Friday.
Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom as David Lopez faced charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the April 29 stabbing. Investigators say it unfolded in Midwood near the intersection of East 17th Street and Avenue M.
Police also arrested Lopez's mother Barbara Golloza who investigators say was caught on video taking the weapon from Lopez and getting rid of it. She is out on bail.
Lopez is being held without bail. His next court appearance is set Aug. 20.
