NEWARK - Four men charged in the fatal carjacking of a young lawyer outside the Short Hills mall have pleaded not guilty.

Hanif Thompson, of Irvington, and Newark residents Karif Ford, Basim Henry and Kevin Roberts entered not-guilty pleas through their public defenders in court this morning.

Each has been charged with murder, felony murder, carjacking, conspiracy, possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose.
