    A Massachusetts teenager accused in the strangulation and stabbing death of his friend's mother has been indicted on charges of murder.

    William Smith, of Ashland, Massachusetts, was 15 at the time of the killing in April 2018 but a judge ruled last month that he'll be tried as an adult. He was indicted last week.

    Law enforcement officials say Smith, now 16, acknowledged helping to strangle 47-year-old Kimberly Mironovas in Litchfield, Maine. His lawyer tells the Kennebec Journal that the indictment is no surprise but said he's disappointed Smith is being tried as an adult.

    The victim's 15-year-old son, who's accused of strangling and stabbing her, is awaiting a hearing on whether he'll be tried as an adult, as well. A third teen pleaded guilty to lesser charges.
