Judge Cathleen Campbell entered a plea of not guilty on their behalf, and ordered the two men held without bail, Blodgett’s office said.

Figueroa, 19, and Garcia, 29, both live at 15 Bassett St. in Lynn, prosecutors said.

The two men allegedly attacked Sergio Sanchez, 39, and a 33-year-old Lynn man near 22 Blake St. around 1:30 a.m. Sunday after the victims left a nearby establishment, prosecutors said.

Sanchez, a Reading resident, died from his injurie. The second man, who was rushed to a hospital, survived, prosecutors have said. His name has not been released.
