KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 15-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing another student at a Kansas City middle school last year.
The boy, whose name has not been released, pleaded guilty Monday in Family Court to voluntary manslaughter, according to a Jackson County Court spokeswoman.
He was charged after 14-year-old Manuel Guzman was found injured in a bathroom at Northeast Middle School in Kansas City on April 12, 2022, and died at a hospital.
The boy, who was 14 at the time Guzman was killed, was initially charged with first-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
The boy is being detained at the Jackson County Juvenile Detention Center. He will have a disposition hearing May 17 to determine his future treatment.
Police said the two boys had a confrontation but have never publicly disclosed a possible motive for the stabbing.
