HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Three Connecticut teens charged in the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old man have pleaded guilty to murder and robbery charges.

The Hartford Courant reports (https://cour.at/1WIqWBz ) 17-year-old Robert Stevenson and 19-year-old Cheyenne Concepcion entered pleas Thursday in a Hartford court to felony murder.

Prosecutors say both men robbed Jonathan Torres of his iPhone and headphones on Sept. 3, 2014 in Enfield. They say Stevenson fatally shot Torres in the chest.

Police said they were found in a stolen car in Windsor.

Nineteen-year-old Takai Brown pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery. Authorities said he drove the teens to the crime scene but did not directly participate.

Brown is facing up to 12 years in prison, while the other two could serve more than 25.

They are scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 30.
