UTICA – The Utica teen who is accused of shooting and killing 17-year-old Stefan Medina in August has been indicted by an Oneida County Grand Jury.

In Oneida County Court on Wednesday, 19-year-old Jorge Campos pleaded not guilty to the indictment charges of first-degree manslaughter, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm, and third- and fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

On the night of Aug. 19, Utica police responded to the 700 block of Elizabeth Street for a report of shots fired, and when they arrived on scene they found Medina lying in a driveway with a gunshot wound. He was then transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

Campos is being held in the Oneida County Jail.

Pre-trial motions are scheduled to begin on Oct. 24.
