NEW ORLEANS -- Two of the 13 defendants indicted in the sprawling federal case against the Hankton organization have pleaded not guilty.

Netthany Schexnayder, 33, and Sana Johnson, 37, were each released Friday on a $25,000 bond. They are charged with conspiracy and being accessories to murder.

The rest of the defendants are currently jailed.

Hankton's mother, Shirley, is in custody on conspiracy, drug and money laundering charges. She is set to be arraigned in court Tuesday.

Most of the remaining defendants will be arraigned in court next week.
