A man accused of gunning down a 16-year-old in the middle of the day in Providence pleaded not guilty to charges. Luis Pina is accused of murdering 16-year-old Eric Cuesta on Dec. 4, 2013.

According to police, Cuesta and a juvenile were in a car on Adelaide Avenue in Providence when Cuesta was shot. He later died from his injuries.

Last month, Pina was indicted on one count of murder, one count of assault with a dangerous weapon, two counts of discharging a firearm while committing a crime of violence, and possession of a firearm without a license.
