PITTSBURGH (AP) - A 17-year-old Pennsylvania boy will spend 22½ to 45 years in prison for shooting that killed another teen’s unborn child.

Eric Taylor, of Duquesne, was only 15 when police say he shot 15-year-old DaRae Delgado, who was seven months pregnant, in May 2014. She survived but the child she was carrying did not.

Taylor was convicted as an adult of third-degree murder, attempted homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and three weapons charges in May.

Police say Taylor knocked on the door of the victim’s home, covered the peephole and then opened fire when she answered.

Taylor was sentenced Wednesday by an Allegheny County judge.

Taylor’s attorney plans to appeal.
