Amber Willard LOS ANGELES -- Two of the teens accused in the stabbing death of Hoover student Raul Aguirre will be sent to another court for a hearing, while the third teen pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Tuesday. Prosecutors and one defense attorney plan to file appeals to the judge's ruling. Superior Court Judge Larry Fidler finalized his ruling that the two younger teens -- Rafael Gevorgyan and Anait Msryan, who were 15 and 14, respectively, at the time of the incident -- were entitled to a hearing, which they did not receive, to determine if they were fit to be charged as adults.
