ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (AP) - A 19-year-old has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder of an 8-year-old boy whose throat was slashed in June 2010.
Trevor Reese dropped his insanity defense and pleaded guilty on Thursday in St. Francisville, The Advocate reported.
Reese had been scheduled for trial Monday on a charge of first-degree murder.
His parents visited him Wednesday night in the West Feliciana Parish jail, Sheriff J. Austin Daniel said.
At his sentencing hearing, District Judge William Carmichael will consider whether Reese should have a chance for parole. The judge has not scheduled a sentencing date.
Louisiana law sets life without parole as the only sentence for second-degree murder. However, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that for people who committed crimes as juveniles, life without any consideration of the possibility of parole is unconstitutional.
The victim, Jackson "Jack" Attuso, was one of twins born in Russia and adopted by a Clinton couple. He was attacked on a recreation trail while he, his mother, brothers and family friends rode bicycles through the woods.
