Teen Pleads Guilty in Deadly Lawrence Shooting

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A teenager has pleaded guilty to felony
second-degree murder in the June 7 shooting that left two men dead
during a botched home robbery in Lawrence.
The Lawrence Journal-World reported that Kellam Jones entered
the plea Thursday after agreeing with Douglas County prosecutors
that he will be sentenced to 13 years and five months in prison.
Jones also pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated robbery and
attempted aggravated burglary.
Sentencing is set for Dec. 19.
Authorities said Jones and 18-year-old George Hauk went to the
home of 20-year-old Roland Klundt to commit a robbery. Prosecutors
said Klundt shot Hauk, and Jones then fired several rounds into
Klundt.
Jones was originally charged with two counts of felony
first-degree murder.
