Update:  According to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office todays hearing in the case of two Los Angeles street racers has been postponed until April 17th

Both Israel “Izzy” Valenzuela and Henry Gevorgyan have been charged with two counts of murder, to which they've entered “not guilty” pleas. Each is still being held on $2 million bail. The Judge in the preliminary hearing said that the charges of murder might be a reach.

Eric Siguenza, 26, and Wilson Thomas Wong, 50, were killed and a third man was injured when the
Gevorgyan Ford Mustang car spun out of control during an illegal street race in Chatsworth on Feb. 26, according to prosecutors. Video later surfaced showing Gevorgyan was not behind the wheel of the car and the District Attorney's office has made statements that they do not believe either suspect was behind the wheel of the car that struck the spectors.

This incident has sparked a demand for increased enforcement and penalties for street racing, read about that HERE
