DENVER (AP) - The second of two teenagers accused of plotting to kill classmates at a suburban Denver high school has pleaded guilty to felony menacing.

The Denver Post reports https://goo.gl/nlT4VJ 17-year-old Sienna Johnson, who pleaded guilty Wednesday, could be out of juvenile detention by her 21st birthday as part of a plea deal.

She and co-defendant Brooke Higgins were 16 when they were arrested in December 2015 and charged as adults in the alleged plan to shoot students and staff at Mountain Vista High School. Prosecutors say Johnson referenced the movie “Natural Born Killers” in her journal and was obsessed with the Columbine High School gunmen.

Higgins pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit murder and solicitation of murder. She was sentenced in February to three years in a youth correctional facility.
