GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a 16-year-old boy who pleaded guilty to killing his guardians to 20 years in prison.

The Glasgow Daily Times (http://bit.ly/127KvXL) reports that Christopher Endicott received the sentence during a hearing Tuesday in Metcalfe County.

He pleaded guilty in October in the 2011 slayings of his legal guardians, Gary and Barbara Holloway. The couple was found fatally shot in their Edmonton home. He also entered guilty pleas to robbery, tampering with evidence and fleeing from police.

Under the plea deal, a 20-year sentence was recommended. However, at the court hearing, two Holloway family members asked the judge to consider life without parole and Endicott's attorneys cited their client's age in asking for probation.

The judge was not swayed, but he will re-evaluate the sentence when the boy reaches the age of 18.
