11-year-old admits to killing dad's girlfriend

WAYNESBORO (AP) -- An 11-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to felony murder and gun possession in the fatal shooting of his father's girlfriend.

The boy was 10 when he was charged in the shooting death of Jennifer Albright. He received the maximum sentence from Juvenile Court Judge Willie Saunders of being held in custody until he turns 21.

The Associated Press is not naming the boy because he was not charged as an adult.

Albright was watching the boy, his younger cousin and her 2-year-old daughter on Dec. 30. Prosecutors say the boy shot Albright in the back with a 12-gauge shotgun as she was changing her daughter.

The boy is the second person of his age to be charged in connection with a murder in Georgia.
