WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A jury in Wausau deliberated about three hours before finding a 16-year-old boy guilty in the fatal stabbing a 13-year-old boy.

Dylan Yang was convicted Friday of killing Isaiah Powell during a suspected gang confrontation in Wausau on Feb. 27, 2015.

The Wausau Daily Herald reports that Yang hung his head and then slumped in his chair upon hearing the verdict, his defense attorney putting his arm around him.

Nearly three dozen witnesses testified, including Yang. He admitted stabbing Powell but claimed he thought Powell had a real gun - not a BB gun.

WSAW-TV reports that court records show Yang was offered a plea deal before the trial began Monday, but did not agree to the terms. He now faces a maximum sentence of 60 years in prison.
