14-year-old pleads guilty in Saint-Hyacinthe murder conspiracy case

There will be no trial for one of two teenagers from Saint-Hyacinthe, Que., who was arrested last for allegedly plotting to kill three acquaintances.

The 16-year-old was declared not criminally responsible Tuesday in youth court, on account of a mental disorder.

He cannot be named because he is a minor.

He was facing 11 charges including conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit sexual assault, criminal harassment and possession of a weapon

He will remain at the Pinel Institute for treatment.

Charges against the 14-year-old remain in place. He is due back in court on April 6.

The two were arrested in September 2016 after police were alerted by a parent of one of the accused.
