The suspects in the fatal shooting of a Virginia man who was visiting the San Francisco Bay area for a job interview have pleaded not guilty to murder charges.

Twenty-four-year-old George Huggins and his girlfriend, 33-year-old Althea Housley, entered the pleas on Monday in the death of Jing Hong Kang.

Authorities say Huggins fired the shots that killed Kang in downtown Oakland on July 18 after robbing him of $17. Housley was allegedly present. Kang, 45, was visiting from Fairfax, Va. for a job interview at Google Inc. in Mountain View.

Huggins is also charged with the special circumstance of committing a murder during an attempted robbery, which could make him eligible for the death penalty.

Huggins and Housley are due back in Alameda County Superior Court on Nov. 1 for a pretrial hearing.
