Juvenile pleas for 2 boys in teen girl’s Baltimore death

BALTIMORE — Two boys charged with fatally shooting a 13-year-old girl in the chest and hiding her body under trash bags in Baltimore have admitted to their roles in the slaying.

A 13-year-old boy made the juvenile court equivalent of a guilty plea to involuntary manslaughter Tuesday for accidentally shooting Monae Turnage on March 3. A 12-year-old admitted to being an accessory to the crime for helping move her body.

The Baltimore Sun reports that a sentencing hearing will be held later this month.
