One Of Two Teens Pleads Guilty In Schafer Hocking Hills Death

(24-7 News Source) -- One of the teenagers accused of killing a photographer at Hocking Hills State Park last year is pleading guilty as part of a plea arrangement.

During a court appearance Wednesday, 17-year-old Jaden Churchheus pled guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter and will spend three-years in a juvenile detention center.

Churchheus said he and another teen, identified as Jordan Buckley, rolled a 75-pound log off a cliff that hit and killed 44-year-old Victoria Schafer as she took pictures.

Prosecutors say Buckley has also reached a plea deal and will be in court next week.
