STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Stamford 16-year-old who may be the youngest ever charged with murder in Stamford is moving head with his defense against allegations that he killed a man last year outside a fast-food restaurant, according to the Stamford Advocate.
Marquest Hall rejected a plea deal this week that would have required him to plead guilty to killing 52-year-old Antonio Muralles on March 11, 2015 outside a McDonald's on Bedford Street. The deal would have meant a 25-year sentence, followed by special parole, the Stamford Advocate reports.
Hall, who appeared in court Wednesday with attorney Ryan O'Neill , told the judge he understood that, if convicted, he could be sentenced for up to 60 years in jail, according to the Stamford Advocate. A trial date has not been set yet, the Stamford Advocate says.
