William Otto pleads not guilty in deaths of Gustavo Espinosa-Gamboa and Jonathan Gonzalez

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. - A man accused of killing two teenage boys after friends said the boys tried to blackmail him has pleaded not guilty in Adams County court.

William Otto faces charges of first-degree murder, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of tampering with evidence. He appeared in court on Tuesday.

The Denver Post reports Gustavo Espinosa-Gamboa was shot three times in the head and once in the chest, and Jonathan Gonzalez died from one shot to the head. The teens' bodies were found buried in August in the small farming town of Sedgwick, about 150 miles away from their neighborhood in unincorporated Adams County.

Authorities say Otto killed the two teens after they allegedly tried to blackmail him with a cell phone video over a sex act.
