Teen gets 40 years in killing of Texas woman, 88
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX -- Prosecutors say a 15-year-old boy has been sentenced to 40 years prison for the fatal stabbing of an elderly South Texas woman.
A judge in Corpus Christi accepted the juvenile capital murder plea agreement and then sentenced the youth in the death of 88-year-old Christina Parades Naranjo.
The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports another 15-year-old faces trial over the January slaying at the victim's home. The first teen pleaded guilty Monday and has agreed to testify against the second boy.
The first boy must serve his sentence in the juvenile system until age 19. A hearing will then be held before he's moved to the adult prison system. The teen must serve at least half his sentence before being eligible for parole.
