Jenks teen accused of murder accepts plea deal


JENKS, Okla. – A Jenks teen accused of murder has accepted a plea deal.

Joshua Mooney was 14-years-old when he allegedly gunned down a woman in cold blood.

Today, on his 16th birthday, he accepted a plea deal that would send him to prison for life.

In December 2012, Mooney allegedly broke into a Jenks home  belonging to the parents of Mary Escue.

When she discovered him inside, he shot and killed her with a rifle found inside the home.

According to reports, Mooney plead guilty to first degree murder of 47-year-old Mary Escue, robbery and second degree burglary.

The plea agreement states that Mooney will serve a life sentence with the possibility of parole.

He will be eligible to get out of prison when he is 54-years-old.
