16-Year Old Burien Girl Makes Deal For Killing Kent Man
A 16-year old Burien girl accused of killing a man in Kent has made a deal with King County prosecutors.
The girl (whose identity remains unreleased due to her age), plead guilty to manslaughter Thursday, and will serve less than three years in state juvenile detention after being sentenced Oct. 21st in King County Juvenile Court.
Prosecutors say information emerged that the girl may have been attacked or threatened.
The 49-year-old man, Francisco Pena, was stabbed in the chest in April at his home near Kent, after hiring the girl as a prostitute.
