PHOENIX (AP) -- Two of three people facing felony charges after a brawl with members of an Arizona State University fraternity over a girl have pleaded not guilty in the case.

Caleb Everett, 20, (above) and Isaiah Everett, 19, entered their pleas Monday. Both are slated to go before Commissioner Lisa VandenBerg for their next court appearances on July 5.

Tempe police say the Everetts were arrested shortly after the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity brothers were attacked by a group of people armed with baseball bats and handguns on April 28.

The fight started when a group of guys from Tempe, West Phoenix and Surprise went to a DKE party at the Hayden Terrace Apartments near the ASU campus. Police say they were looking for a Surprise High School senior girl, reportedly Caleb Everett's ex-girlfriend, who had attended the party.

Investigators say the suspects allegedly attacked five members of DKE, two of whom suffered serious injuries. The incident was caught on video.

The Everett brothers and three other people were arrested in the wake of the brawl. Two of them, Clarissa Casillas and Michael Reyes, both 19, were cited with misdemeanor offenses and released. The Everetts and their friend, Zack Rezendes, 18, were charged with felonies.

No DKE fraternity members were arrested.
