A Vinita teen pleaded guilty Friday to fatally shooting his stepmother in 2016.

Koalten Orr was sentenced to life in prison, with all but 25 years suspended.

Orr is to pay a $500 fine, $5,041.78 in restitution and will be on supervised probation when he is released from the Department of Corrections, court records show.

2 Works for You reported back in November 2017 , that Orr shot 38-year-old Laura Hendrix. Orr told police that Hendrix “sexually abused him and that he was tired of the abuse.”

Past court proceedings  showed those allegations were not credible.
