Nine-Year-Old Boy Pleads Guilty In Shooting Death

A 9-year-old Arizona boy has pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in the shooting death of his father's roommate.

Two premeditated murder charges for the deaths of the father and the roommate were dropped as part of a plea deal. The boy entered the plea before Apache County Superior Court Judge Michael Roca on Thursday.

The boy previously pleaded not guilty in the Nov. 5 deaths of his father, 29-year-old Vincent Romero, and the roommate, 39-year-old Timothy Romans. The boy was 8 at the time of the killings. Prosecutors and defense attorneys had been negotiating a plea agreement for the past month.
