Ohio teen sentenced as juvenile in killing

Convicted of slaying 3-year-old half sister

AKRON, Ohio — A northeast Ohio teen convicted of raping and killing his 3-year-old half sister could be released from juvenile custody in less than four years if he behaves himself.

The 17-year-old boy from Barberton was sentenced Thursday to confinement at an Ohio Department of Youth Services facility until he turns 21. He'll get counseling and schooling toward a degree.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that Juvenile Judge Linda Tucci Teodosio ruled that if the teen commits a violent act at the juvenile facility, he could be sent to an adult prison for life.

The boy was 15 when the crimes occurred in 2011. An autopsy said the 3-year-old girl died from “multisystem organ failure,” a medical term for serious infection over a period of time from traumatic injuries.
