BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - One of two teenagers accused of beating a 30-year-old developmentally disabled man to death in his Boulder apartment has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

The Daily Camera reports (https://bit.ly/174iIxA ) 19-year-old Austin Holford entered his plea Friday and faces 48 to 70 years in prison when he is sentenced May 6. He also pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree assault and two counts of aggravated robbery.

Holford and 19-year-old Luke Pelham are accused of killing Aaron Tuneberg while trying to steal his video game console March 31. Police say Tuneberg suffered serious head injuries when he was beaten with an aluminum baseball bat and a golf club.

He died a week after the assault.

Pelham is in custody on murder charges while he undergoes a competency evaluation.
