Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two men accused in a spree of robberies, including one in La Mesa in which a 16-year-old Arizona boy was shot in the head, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to attempted murder and other charges.

Alvaro Regalado, 19, and Juan Arriero, 20, were each ordered held in lieu of $1 million bail.

Deputy District Attorney Christine Israel told Judge David Szumowski that the defendants went on a robbery spree with a shotgun and a handgun, holding up seven people in five separate robberies, including the robbery and shooting of the teen in La Mesa on June 27.

The prosecutor said Regalado is accused in a separate carjacking on June 7, and Arriero is accused of trying to hide the shotgun and allegedly made comments that he and Regalado were headed to Tijuana.

Both Regalado and Arriero face life terms in prison if convicted, Israel said.

A status conference was set for July 13 and a preliminary hearing for July 15.
