PHOENIX — Six of the seven people accused of killing 16-year-old Preston Lord at a Halloween party in October in Queen Creek pleaded not guilty Wednesday to the charges they face in connection to his death.

Those in court Wednesday were 17-year-old Talan Renner, 20-year-old Dominic Turner, 17-year-old Talyn Vigil, 19-year-old Taylor Sherman, and 17-year-old Jacob Meisner. One of the accused, 18-year-old William Hines, did not appear at his hearing Wednesday but entered a plea of not guilty.

The seventh individual, 18-year-old Treston Billey, was not in court Wednesday. He is expected to appear in court Thursday.

Court paperwork indicates that a necklace was stolen from another victim, only listed in the records as “Victim A.”

At some point after, Lord and a group went running and were chased before the attack took place.

Lord died two days after the Oct. 28 attack in Queen Creek.
