SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) -- The two newest suspects in the killing of an alleged pimp in early June in San Francisco are pleading not guilty.

Prosecutors have already charged the parents of a 17-year old girl Calvin Sneed allegedly used as a prostitute.

The 22-year old Sneed was shot to death June 4th in the Bayview District.

The teen's parents, 37-year old Lupe Mercado and 38-year old Barry Gilton were charged with conspiracy to commit murder in Sneed's death.

The two men, Alfonso Williams and Antonio Gilton were also arrested Wednesday for the death of Sneed. They have been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and various firearm offenses.
 
They have pleaded not guilty to all charges in a San Francisco courtroom Thursday afternoon.
 
According to the criminal complaint against Williams and Antonio, the pair allegedly met up with Barry Gilton in the morning on June 4th. They then retrieved a gun from a Chevrolet Trail Blazer, and drove a Hyundai Tuscon to the Bayview district to wait for Sneed. 
 
They then allegedly drove alongside Sneed's car and Barry Gilton shot him in the head.
 
The attorney representing Antonio Gilton, Sangeeta Sinha, said her client is Barry Gilton's cousin. 
 
All four defendants are being held on $2 million bail and are all scheduled to return to court on July 12th
