Anthony Barwick II, Deron McGuire Jr, .Tavaughn Lewis and London Norman all entered not guilty pleas to charges of murder, robbery, burglary and manslaughter at their arraignments Friday in Greene County Common Pleas Court.
Police say the four, along with Ta'Vaun Fambrough tried to rob a Victoria Avenue house in Fairborn with a plastic gun, but the two people inside fought back.
