Guam - The five teens accused of having a role in the brutal murder of 31-year-old Vincent Bernardo Peredo appeared in the Superior Court Wednesday to answer to criminal charges.  Derrick Cruz, Cal-Jerome Delorie, Zared Zermaine Lizama and Shayne Terlaje all pleaded not guilty to the various charges they each face. 

Cruz, Delorie and Lizama are scheduled to appear back in court for a trial setting on April 23, while Terlaje asserted his right to a speedy trial and is scheduled to appear for a criminal trial setting on April 2.  Darren Cruz was the only defendant who didn't answer to the charges during today's arraignment hearing, as the court had to appoint a new attorney to his case because the first lawyer withdrew due to a conflict. 

Another arraignment is scheduled for April 7. All five defendants remain behind bars on $500,000 cash bail each.
