Teen ordered to boot camp for killing of Australian baseball player

STEPHENS COUNTY, Okla._The final defendant in the murder of Australian baseball player Christopher Lane has pleaded guilty to being an accessory to the killing.

James Edwards Jr., 18, admitted in court Wednesday that he made a call from prison in 2013 to hide the gun used in the murder. Edwards backed out of a deal to serve 20 years in behind bars followed by 20 years on probation. Instead, he will be heading to Alva, Oklahoma, where he's been ordered to take part in a prison boot camp.

When he gets back, Stephens County Judge Ken Graham will determine his sentence on June 14 of next year. The maximum sentence for accessory to murder is 45 years.
