COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Two teenagers entered a plea deal in connection with the death and robbery of a man outside a local bar. The teens were officially sentenced on Friday.
According to court documents, four teenagers were playing a game called knockout when 43-year-old Terry Ward was punched outside the Blueberry Hill bar in September. Ward was killed in the attack, NBC 4 reported.
Officials said the game begins when a group of people approach an unexpecting stranger and one of the people punches the person in the face as hard as they can in an attempt to knock them out.
Detectives were able to arrest four people and charge them in connection with the death.
Charged were 13-year-old Doug Bailey, 14-year-old Joshua Connally, 15-year-old Elijah Nichols and 18-year-old Emmanuel Jackson.
Bailey pleaded guilty to felonious assault on Friday. He was released and put on house arrest.
Connally pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to a year in juvenile detention.
Both deals require the teenagers to help prosecutors in the case against Nichols and Jackson.
