ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – One of the three teens who pleaded guilty for his role in the murders of two homeless men is expected in court.

Wednesday, the teen could find out if he’ll be sentenced as an adult, or a juvenile.

Nathaniel Carrillo, 18, pleaded “no contest” and got 26 years.

Alex Rios was found guilty and is now serving a 67 and a half year sentence.
