Two men this week pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of a Rosemont man, court records show.
Michael John Almeda, 19, and Rodolfo Simon Villa, 22, were both charged with murder in the shooting death of 21-year-old Alexander Brian Chavez in Rosemont Jan. 17.
Almeda also faces a sentence-enhancing allegation of gun possession, as court records indicated he had a .40-caliber pistol on him when the victim was slain.
Court officers could not say whether Villa faces a gun allegation.
Almeda faces 25 years to life on the first-degree murder charge, according to state mandatory sentencing statutes.
The criminal complaint filed against Almeda is attached to this story as a PDF.
Almeda was ordered next to appear in court for a felony settlement conference Feb. 14; he was being held on no bail.
Villa was also being held on no bail, pending a Feb. 1 felony settlement conference, District Attorney officials said.
Almeda and Villa allegedly took part in the shooting death of Chavez as the victim drove north on Westporter Drive about 6:15 p.m., according to police.
Villa was set for arraignment Friday afternoon.
