CALGARY — A Calgary man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of a 17-year-old boy who was shot in the head through a basement window.
The man, who was also 17 at the time of the February 2007 shooting, entered the plea Thursday.
He had originally been charged with first-degree murder after Adam Cavanagh was killed during a house party.
The man was convicted of the more serious charge in 2012, but the decision was overturned on appeal and a new trial was ordered.
Cavanagh's parents say they are disappointed with the plea and want an adult sentence.
A sentencing date will be set Feb. 5. (CHQR)
