Bryan Stow beating suspects plead not guilty
Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood are scheduled to appear in court July 24 for another pretrial hearing, a district attorney spokeswoman said.
The men were ordered two weeks ago to stand trial after a six-day preliminary hearing that included dramatic testimony from witnesses, including the chilling moment when Stow's skull hit the pavement. A recording of Norwood admitting to his mother that he was "involved" in the opening-day beating also was played in the courtroom.
On the first day of the preliminary hearing, prosecutors showed a video of Norwood sitting in an interrogation room, speaking to his mother on a Los Angeles Police Department detective's cellphone.
"Hey, I got arrested for that Dodger Stadium thing," the 31-year-old says. "I was involved .... To a certain extent I was."
He tells his mother he can't say much over the phone but says Louie Sanchez, 30, is also in custody.
Norwood then apologizes: "Pretty sure I'm going down for it .... I'm sorry."
