SURPRISE, AZ - Two people arrested in a fight over marijuana that left one man dead in Surprise have pleaded not guilty in the case.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 28-year-old Jesse Gillen and 29-year-old Stephanie Conley entered their pleas Thursday. Their next scheduled court date is Oct. 5.
Prosecutors say Gillen and Conley are facing charges of first-degree murder, burglary, armed robbery and aggravated assault.
Authorities say the two were part of a group that went to the home of Martin Ridgway looking for marijuana on Aug. 6.
Ridgway told police he refused to sell to them after they presented fake medical marijuana cards.
Authorities say a man then shot Ridgway and he fought back with a knife in self-defense. The alleged attacker died and Ridgway was taken to a hospital.
