Serenity Renee Nieblas, 19, pleaded not guilty to charges that included attempted murder in a pair of South Bay road rage incidents. 

Nieblas was initially arrested for a May 4 shooting at the Intersection of Olympic Parkway and Town Center Drive. She was released on bail. 

Authorities alleged that her 19-year-old boyfriend Gillio Calais Repetto, of Bonita, shot at a 34-year-old motorist four times during the road rage incident at around 10 a.m. while Neiblas was the driver. 

Prosecutors alleged that Nieblas and Repetto were also involved in a similar February road rage incident in the Eastlake area.

A defense attorney argued to keep Neiblas, who is pregnant and nearly ready to give birth, to be on home detention with GPS monitoring and reside with her mother. San Diego Superior Court Judge Garry Haehnle ordered that she be remanded to custody until she can be fully screened for the County Parole and Alternative Custody program, or CPAC, a process that can take several weeks. 

District Attorney Allen Brown alleged that Nieblas' car and another vehicle were racing each other on May 4 for some time before stopping at the intersection of Olympic Parkway and Town Center Drive, where the prosecutor said Repetto and the victim got into a fistfight.

Brown said that at some point, Repetto reached for his waistband and said words to the effect of 'I'll kill you”. Repetto re-entered Nieblas’ silver Hyundai and allegedly opened fire in the car, which sped off.

According to police, the victim drove away after the altercation while calling 911. After reporting the shooting, he pulled over and waited for paramedics, who transported him to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries on his bicep and hand.  

Both Neiblas and Repetto are also accused to be involved in another road rage incident on Feb.16 that lead Repetto and a male driver of another vehicle to get out of their cars to fight on the side of the road.

The victim was hit several times in the back by Nieblas, according to Brown. The victim discovered he later was stabbed eight to nine times. 

Repetto pleaded not guilty last week to attempted murder and other charges. He remains in custody.
