Edmonton Youth pleads guilty to last May's murder in Fort St. John

An Edmonton youth charged in the death of another Edmonton youth, after an altercation in Fort St. John, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

As reported last May, the seventeen year old victim was found, in distress, on Sunday May 18th, at a Fort St. John apartment located, in the 89th hundredth block of 100th avenue.

She was taken to hospital, but later died as a result of her injuries.

Both the victim and the accused were 17 at the time of the death, which means there is a publication ban in effect.

The male will also be sentenced as youth, which means a maximum term of seven years in custody.
