St. Louis teen guilty in high school football stars death

ST. LOUIS—A St. Louis teenager is facing up to 30 years in prison after being convicted of killing a high school football star.

A St. Louis jury on Tuesday found Terron Pool guilty of second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the September 2010 death of 17-year-old Rahmel McNeil, a Sumner High School football player.

The jurors on Wednesday recommended a 30-year prison sentence for armed criminal action but couldn’t reach a decision on the murder charge, meaning the judge could go lower but not higher than 30 years when Pool is sentenced Aug. 2.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports prosecutors say McNeil was shot while walking away from a fight with several other youths.

A second suspect, Rodnell Cotton, is set for trial later this month.
