MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis man accused of fatally stabbing another man last November pleaded guilty as jury selection was about to begin for his trial.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says 19-year-old Robinson Palacios-Castro pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Elias Lopez-Lopez of Minneapolis following a fight.

Authorities say Lopez-Lopez died at a hospital from multiple stab wounds, one of which hit his heart.

Freeman says Palacios-Castro will receive 22 years in prison when he’s sentenced Sept. 21.
