TAMPA, Fla. -- Attorneys for two teenage drivers accused of racing down Bayshore Boulevard in excess of 100 mph, hitting and killing a mother and her baby, have entered formal 'not guilty' pleas for the suspects.

Cameron Herrin, 18, and 17-year-old John Barrineau are charged with two counts of vehicular homicide and street racing. Both waved their appearances in court Monday, June 25 for a court arraignment.

Both have formally plead not guilty and the disposition is scheduled for August 9.

Investigators found the Ford Mustang that Herrin was driving was traveling 102 mph before it started braking and made a hard right, according to electronic evidence. It crashed into 24-year-old Jessica Raubenolt and her 2-year-old daughter, Lillia, while she was being pushed in a stroller.

Barrineau is accused of driving a Nissan Altima in the street race.

Herrin's brother, 17-year-old Tristan Herrin, was a passenger in the Mustang. He was arraigned and pleaded not guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of unlawful racing on a highway.

In Florida, a passenger in a suspected street racing car also can be charged.
