GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The teen accused of pulling the trigger in the deadly shooting of an East Kentwood High School senior faces sentencing.

This week, Israel Valdez pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and felony firearm possession.

Earlier this year, Valdez was charged with open murder, assault with intent to rob while armed and armed robbery in connection to Jan. 13 shooting death of 17-year-old James King. However, prosecutors reduced those charges as part of a plea agreement.
