by | Mar 17, 2014

The King County Prosecutor’s Office says 17-year-old Byron White pleaded not guilty this morning to killing David Peterson in Greenwood on Feb. 23.

White entered not guilty pleas to first-degree murder with a firearm enhancement, second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, and second-degree attempted robbery. He has been charged in adult court under a state law that provides for automatic adult prosecution for 16 and 17-year-old juveniles accused of serious violent offenses. The range for those charges is 27 to 35 years in prison.

He remains in custody on $2 million bail.

A case setting hearing is scheduled for March 31.
