COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A 13-year-old boy charged in juvenile court has admitted his role in the robbery and killing of a pizza delivery driver who took an order to a central Ohio property that turned out to be vacant.

Two young men also are charged in the July 30 robbery and killing of James Flannery in Columbus. They have pleaded not guilty.

The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1j6sGFn ) reports the teen admitted to delinquency counts of aggravated robbery and involuntary manslaughter under a plea deal Monday. He’ll be sentenced Nov. 24 and could be committed to the Department of Youth Services until he’s 21.

Police say it appears Flannery fled in his vehicle after being robbed and shot, then crashed in an intersection in the southeast suburbs. A prosecutor says the 13-year-old wasn’t the shooter.
