DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — A 13-year-old in Virginia has been charged with murder after police said the teen admitted to suffocating a 4-year-old sibling last year.
Authorities had been investigating the death since August, and the teen confessed to killing the child earlier this week, Danville Police said in a statement.
The teen is charged with first degree murder and will be held in custody until a trial, police said.
The name of the teen was not released because of his age. Police also didn’t release additional details about the child’s death.
