A 14-year-old Virginia boy convicted of participating in the fatal beating of an Arizona man has been sentenced to a juvenile detention center until he turns 21.

The teen was convicted in juvenile court of first-degree murder on Feb. 28. He was 13 at the time of the attack in Lynchburg, Va.

Prosecutors say the youth and two other teenagers attacked 81-year-old George Baker III of Tempe on Sept. 5, 2010. Baker died the next day. He was in Lynchburg for his granddaughter’s wedding.

Media outlets report that the 14-year-old was sentenced Wednesday.
