TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A 36-year-old man has pleaded guilty to setting fire to a Tulsa home, killing a 5-year-old boy.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/1Q7Alhw ) reports Steven Lewis Clement pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of first-degree murder and endangering human life during arson.

Prosecutors say Clement shared the home with the boy’s mother and her three other children and set the fire Sept. 16. Two children were taken to a hospital in critical condition due to smoke inhalation. The 5-year-old boy died four days later after being in a coma.

Clement faces life in prison without parole.
