Six of the seven teenagers accused in a fatal attack on a Hispanic immigrant are scheduled to appear for a court conference Thursday on Long Island. The seven teens have pleaded not guilty to various charges in the Nov. 8 killing of Ecuadorean immigrant Marcelo Lucero. The 37-year-old laborer was fatally stabbed in the chest in Patchogue.

Suffolk County police say the victim was targeted by the group because he was Hispanic.

A spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney says the six expected to appear in Riverhead State Supreme Court include Jeffrey Conroy, Jordan Dasch, Nicholas Hausch, Anthony Hartford, Kevin Shea and Jose Pacheco. The seventh defendant, Christopher Overton, is scheduled for a court conference on Jan. 27.
