Charles City Teen Murderer to Get New Sentence

Created: 01/09/2014 3:59 PM

A North Iowa man who was a 14 when he committed murder, will be re-sentenced.

The soon to be 19-year-old Edgar Concepcion Jr. was convicted of several crimes, including sex abuse and murder, in the death of 3-year-old Krystal Banes.

The Charles City teen was put in charge of babysitting the girl, along with his cousins.

Because of a supreme court ruling in 2013, all juveniles who were given mandatory life sentences, must be re-sentenced.

A date has not been set.

Krystal Banes
