A 14-year-old boy has pleaded guilty in connection with the beating death of a homeless man outside a Philadelphia gas station last year.

The attack on 51-year-old Robert Barnes outside a Sunoco gas station in Olney last April was captured on surveillance video.

He died in November from his injuries.

On Wednesday, the teenaged boy admitted to third degree murder and conspiracy under a plea deal.

Two other juveniles will be in court later this month.

Three women also face murder charges.
