TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A 13-year-old boy in Ohio has acknowledged tossing a sandbag off an interstate overpass that killed a Michigan man riding in a car.
The boy pleaded guilty Friday to murder and felonious assault charges in juvenile court in Toledo.
The maximum penalty he’ll face when he’s sentenced in March could keep him in a juvenile prison until he’s 21.
The boy was one of four teenagers arrested after police say they were throwing rocks and sandbags onto Interstate 75 in December.
