DETROIT – A Detroit teenager will spend four to six years in a juvenile facility for his role in the slaying of a French street artist.
The Detroit News reports (http://detne.ws/1oQeN0A ) that the 15-year-old received a blended sentence Wednesday and could face up to 65 years in prison if he gets into more trouble.
He was convicted of murder and robbery and is the fourth defendant sentenced in the death of 23-year-old Bilal Berreni. The others are adults.
Berreni was found dead with a gunshot wound to the face in July 2013. Authorities say about $300 had been stolen.
Berreni had no identification, and it took months to identify him through fingerprints.
The teen wasn't accused of pulling the trigger. The Associated Press is not naming him because of his age.
