Texas Teen Sentenced For Killing Boy, 17, With Hammer

FORT WORTH (January 23, 2014) A plea agreement was reached Wednesday just before the trial of the 17-year-old Fort Worth boy was scheduled to begin in juvenile court, Tarrant County prosecutors said.

The boy was sentenced to 26 years in prison after admitting to a count of capital murder and a separate charge of tampering with evidence.

Prosecutors didn’t identify the teen because he's a juvenile.

He bludgeoned Nicholas Anderson, 17, in May at a Fort Worth park and the stole the victim’s car, watch, phone and wallet.

The boy then drove to a friend's house and recruited him to help dispose of Anderson's body in a wooded area of the park.
