Salvador Michael Camarillo, 19, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to murder charges stemming from the shooting death of former Covina High linebacker Leo Asoau.
A preliminary hearing was set for Sept. 13 by Citrus Municipal Court Judge Robert Young.
Asoau, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound linebacker who was a Times All-San Gabriel Valley selection last year, was shot to death Aug. 14 outside a friend's home. Camarillo has been held on $1-million bail since his arrest.
Asoau had received a scholarship to play football at Washington State and was killed a week before he was scheduled to leave for Pullman, Wash.
