Two men have pleaded guilty to their roles in the death of a 16-year-old Boston boy who was shot in the back while riding his bicycle.
Du'Shawn Taylor-Gennis and Raeshawn Moody had faced first-degree murder charges in the June 2015 death of Jonathan Dos Santos in the city's Dorchester neighborhood. Taylor-Gennis was 16 at the time, and Moody was 14, but both were tried as adults in open court.
The Boston Globe reports that the 20-year-old Taylor-Gennis pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder and gun charges and was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole in 15 years.
