Nov 1, 2013 - The Associated Press

GREEN RIVER -- A Rock Springs teen has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 2012 death of a 17-year-old boy.

Nineteen-year-old Brady Jacob Trevino pleaded guilty Wednesday before state District Court Judge Nena James as part of a plea agreement.

Authorities say Rigoberto "Junior" Alvarado, of Rock Springs, died on July 29, 2012, or June 30, 2012, and his body was found on Aug. 19, 2012, by a group exploring the remains of abandoned coal camps and mining operations north of Rock Springs.

Trevino said he and Alvarado got into a fight and he hit Alvarado with a baseball bat and put a plastic bag over his head.

A pre-sentence investigation will be done. No sentencing date was set.
