The second worker charged with setting a series of dry-ice bombs at Los Angeles International Airport has pleaded not guilty.

Miguel Angel Iniguez of Inglewood entered the plea Tuesday to one felony count of possession of a destructive device near an airplane.

The 41-year-old supervises workers at LAX for ground services company Servisair.

Prosecutors allege that Iniguez and another airport employee, 28-year-old Dicarlo Bennett, made a total of three dry ice bombs near airport terminals on Oct. 13, but only two of them exploded.

No one was injured.

Bennett pleaded not guilty last week and is being held on $1 million bail. Iniguez is being held on $500,000.

They are due to appear together at a bail review hearing Wednesday.
