INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis teenager has pleaded guilty to murder in the shooting death of a 24-year-old expectant father on his morning walk.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says 17-year-old Simeon Adams pleaded guilty in the slaying of Nathan Trapuzzano during a hearing Thursday. Trapuzzano was slain on April 1, 2014, on the city's west side.

Adams, who was 16 at the time of the slaying, was charged as an adult for the crime. Under terms of a plea agreement, he is expected to be sentenced to 55 years in prison on July 24.

Curry says prosecutors struck the plea agreement after consulting with the Trapuzzano family.

The victim's widow gave birth to a daughter about four weeks after the slaying.
