BALTIMORE (AP) — Two boys who have admitted roles in the fatal shooting of a 13-year-old girl whose body was found hidden beneath trash bags have been sentenced.
Baltimore police have said the children were playing with a rifle in March when it went off, killing Monae Turnage.
On Wednesday, a juvenile court judge sentenced the 13-year-old boy who pulled the trigger to indefinite confinement at a treatment center. The most he could serve in detention is three years.
The 12-year-old boy who helped him move the body will be monitored by the Department of Juvenile Services while living with relatives in Harford County.
The investigations of three adults connected to the case have not yet been resolved.
