UTICA, N.Y. -- A Utica teen accused of shooting and killing another Utica teen, last summer, admitted to the crime.

Jorge Campos was originally charged with manslaughter. A new, upgraded charge of murder came in February of this year.

Campos was supposed to be in court for "answer and argument" with the judge Monday, and instead, he entered a guilty plea.

Stefan Medina, 17, was shot and killed on Elizabeth Street.

Campos faces 23 years in prison when he's sentenced May 24.
