A 17 year-old accused in the shooting death of another teen says she didn’t do it.
Melissa Alvarez pled not guilty during her arraignment hearing Thursday morning. She’s charged with 17 year-old Manual Ruvalcaba’s murder.
Ruvalcaba was shot and killed during a home invasion in the 4600 block of Mannheim back in June. Investigators don’t believe Alvarez pulled the trigger. But, state law mandates she be charged with murder since a crime was taking place.
She’s due back in court in two weeks.
