Boy pleads guilty to fatal stabbing at Kansas City school

(AP) — A 15-year-old has pleaded guilty in family court to fatally stabbing a student at a Kansas City middle school last year. 

A spokeswoman for the Jackson County Court confirmed the boy pleaded guilty Monday to voluntary manslaughter in the death of Manuel Guzman at Northeast Middle School last April. 

Guzman was found suffering from stab wounds in the school’s bathroom. 

The juvenile, whose name has not been released, is being detained at the Jackson County Juvenile Detention Center. 

He will have a disposition hearing May 17 to determine his future treatment. 

Police have never publicly disclosed a possible motive for the stabbing.
