WILMINGTON, Del. — Authorities say an 18-year-old Delaware man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a murder he committed as a juvenile.

Eighteen-year-old Khalil Seals of Wilmington was sentenced last week for the September 2015 killing of 25-year-old Hassan Brown, also of Wilmington.

Seals pleaded guilty in February to second-degree murder. He was charged as an adult.
