Teen Pleads Guilty to Murder, Robbery
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A Minneapolis teen has pleaded guilty to murder and aggravated robbery.
In a plea deal with Hennepin County prosecutors, 17-year-old Shire Basal entered the plea Tuesday to second-degree murder in the death of 32-year-old Liban Abdulahi of Burnsville last September. Basal said he and Abdulahi had an altercation several months earlier.
Basal also pleaded guilty to first-degree aggravated robbery for holding up a woman on a Minneapolis street with a BB gun. A second robbery count will be dismissed.
Sentencing is June 10. The agreement calls for Basal to receive a 25-year prison sentence.
