A teenager pled guilty Monday to murdering his 16-year-old pregnant girlfriend.

Anthony Ruiz shot Jennifer Zacarias in her back yard on West 102nd Street in Cleveland Feb. 8, 2013.

Zacarias's father heard the gunshots and found his daughter's body.

Ruiz was 16 at the time of the shooting, but his case was tried in adult court. He confessed to Cleveland Police and told them where he hid the gun, which was later found.

Ruiz pled guilty to one count of murder and will be sentenced on Oct. 17.
