Teen Murder Suspect

A 15 year old boy will remain in juvenile custody until he's 21 after pleading guilty to shooting and killing a man in Yakima back in August.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports Jose Diaz pleaded guilty to second degree murder last week in the death of Anthony Yocom.

Prosecutors were initially looking to charge him as an adult before the plea deal was struck.

Diaz told officers he shot Yocom in self defense
