12 YEAR OLD PLED GUILTY IN CASE OF FATAL SHOOTING

 
Sanilac County officials say a 12-year-old Marlette Township boy has pled guilty in the case of an accidental fatal shooting that saw an 11-year-old boy dying of his injuries. Tyler Dunn died at a sleepover on November 23rd, with officials saying no adult was home at the time.  A magistrate will be deciding if the boy is to be sentenced as a juvenile or as an adult on April 29th. The boy's father, Jerry Northrup, is set to stand trial in May on charges of firearms possession by a felon and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  He's facing a five-year prison term if convicted of the firearms charge.
