Teen pleads guilty to 2011 stabbing death of principal

Posted: Updated:

A Memphis teen charged with fatally stabbing his high school principal two years ago has agreed to plead guilty to second degree murder and accept a 35-year prison sentence.

Criminal Court Judge W. Mark Ward on Tuesday questioned Eduardo Marmolejo on the stand. The 18-year-old said he accepted the plea agreement and the judge had no objections.

Marmalejo is the teen who told police he was a "ninja on a mission".

Attorneys for the teen have been working for months to work out a plea deal.

Marmelegjo was 16 at the time he murdered his principal Suzette York, just days after school started back in August 2011. She was the principal at the Memphis Junior Academy.
