ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Sentencing is later today for a teen involved in last February's killing of a 72-year-old New York grandfather visiting his newborn granddaughter in the Tower Grove South neighborhood.

According to court records, Donaldson pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, robbery, and armed criminal action charges.
