TROY, N.Y. -- The last of six teens has been arraigned in connection to a deadly stabbing in Troy. A grand jury indicted the six in the death of Takim Smith, 21.

Authorities say back on February 4th, the teens lured Smith to a Corliss Park Apartment where they robbed and killed him.

Eric Mallard, 19, was arraigned Thursday on murder, robbery, conspiracy, and criminal possession of a weapon charges. Mallard pleaded not guilty and was taken to the county jail without bail.

Keyanna Bradley, Ravenal Dunbar, and Keith Ferguson were all arraigned on the same charges on Wednesday. Mariyah Zeigler, 16, and Davonte McGill, 18, were arraigned last week.

All six teens pleaded not guilty and are being held at county jail without bail.

The Rensselaer County District Attorney says the evidence seems to suggest only one of the suspects actually stabbed Smith, but all six teens are responsible for his death.
