Two more bikers arrested in the May 17 Twin Peaks shootings pleaded not guilty Wednesday during brief court hearings.

Roy Covey, 28, of Clifton, and Jacob Reese, 30, of Mount Pleasant, were arraigned by 54th State District Judge Matt Johnson on engaging in organized criminal activity charges.

The pair were among 106 bikers indicted Nov. 10 on identical charges for their alleged roles in the shootout that left nine bikers dead and more than 20 others wounded.

Covey is affiliated with the Cossacks motorcycle group, while Reese’s attorney, Steve Keathley, declined to say which group Reese rides with.

Court officials have been careful to schedule bikers affiliated with the same group or their support groups for arraignment on the same days.

Six bikers are set for arraignment in 19th State District Court on Thursday morning.

Many of the indicted bikers have chosen to waive their arraignments.
