Teen pleads guilty to robbery in NYC college student Tessa Majors’ death

National/World

NEW YORK (AP) — One of the three teenagers charged in the stabbing death of a college student in New York has pleaded guilty to robbery.

The teen had been arrested just days after the Dec. 11 killing of 18-year-old Tessa Majors in a park. The boy, now 14, told detectives he was at the Manhattan park with other young people but wasn’t the one who stabbed Majors.

The Legal Aid Society said in a statement that the robbery plea “is consistent with our client’s limited role in this tragic event.”

Two other teens have pleaded not guilty to murder in her death.
