The high-ranking gang member accused of ordering a botched hit on an innocent Bronx teen and another man tied to his murder were hauled into a Bronx court Wednesday.

“These two defendants are the latest individuals who have been arrested and charged in connection with a death that occurred in this county on June 20 of this year,” said prosecutor Christine Scaccia of defendants Diego Suero, 29, and Gabriel Ramirez Concepcion, 26.

“There are multiple defendants who have already been brought before a grand jury.”

The ADA offered no details about the role these Trinitarios gang members played in dragging 15-year-old Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz from a bodega and butchering him in the street with knives and machetes.

Police sources said that Suero directed the thugs to commit the murder but his henchman mistakenly targeted the wrong boy.

Suero, wearing a maroon polo shirt, looked disinterested, while, Concepcion, wearing a white sleeveless undershirt and blue gym shorts, appeared to sneer at Judge Shari Michels during the arraignment in Bronx Criminal Court.

Their lawyer, Michael Hughes, entered a plea of not guilty on their behalf to murder, gang assault and other raps.

They were ordered held without bail.

Eight men are already in custody for the June 20 caught-on-camera slaying.

In harrowing footage that shocked the city, the terrified teen was dragged from Cruz and Chiky Grocery in Tremont and slaughtered in the street by a gang of at least six vicious thugs.
