A man and a woman each arrested in the September stabbing of a Canyon Country man have pleaded not guilty to the felony charge of attempted murder, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said.

Daniel Constantino, 20, and Sara Lynn McConahay, 27, both of Canyon Country, appeared Friday in San Fernando Superior Court where they were formally arraigned on the charge of attempted murder.

They pleaded not guilty and are due back in court April 15 for a pre-trial hearing, said Ricardo Santiago.

The two are charged with attacking a 25-year-old Canyon Country man in Newhall Sept. 15 by ramming his car with theirs, then stabbing him repeatedly. The victim, whose name was not released, spent more than two weeks at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in critical condition after undergoing emergency surgery.

Members of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Career, Offender, Burglary, Robbery Apprehension team, or COBRA, arrested Constantino on suspicion of attempted murder Sept. 23. A week later, they arrested McConahay.

Last month, the pair was ordered to stand trial on the charges filed against them.

Constantino remains in custody at the North County Correctional Facility at Pitchess Detention Center with bail set at $1.09 million.

McConahay is being held at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood with bail set at $1.04 million.
