Hearing To Determine Teen's Fate

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A judge is expected to decide the fate of a teen who pleaded guilty to luring another teen to his death four years ago in northern Kentucky.

Emily Ball was 14 when she was one of six people charged with murder in the slaying of 17-year-old Travis White at her Covington residence. She pleaded guilty two years later to a lesser charge of conspiracy to commit assault and was sentenced to serve 15 years.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports now that Ball is 18, a Kenton County judge must decide whether to probate the rest of her sentence, order the Department of Juvenile Justice to keep her in custody until she turns 21 or transfer her to adult prison.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for Friday.
