ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say an 18-year-old Wasilla man has pleaded guilty to a criminal charge in his father’s shooting death.

Troopers say William Robinson Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to one count of criminally negligent homicide in the February 2013 fatal shooting of his father, 57-year-old William Robinson. Sentencing is set to take place in November.

The younger Robinson was originally facing adult charges of first- and second-degree murder.

According to court documents, the teen entered the family room and shot his father six times as the older Robinson rose from a sofa.

The teen is represented by an attorney with the state Office of Public Advocacy who did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.
