TULSA — A teen accused of murdering a Broken Arrow teacher and raping an elderly woman in 2017 has avoided trial by entering a blind guilty plea.
Deonte Green entered the blind plea on Wednesday, which means there is no prepared deal with the prosecutor, and he will take his chances at sentencing held before a judge.
In October 2017, Green was arrested for shooting and killing BA middle school teacher Shane Anderson in front of his two daughters.

Police said that Green raped an 81-year-old woman in the same neighborhood 30 minutes before the fatal shooting.

Tulsa District Attorney's Office said Green entered the blind plea to all the counts - which included kidnapping, murder and rape - except for three counts of possession of a firearm, which were dropped.
Green's sentencing is scheduled for July 9-11.
