SPOKANE, Wash. -- Accused killer Avondre Graham pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Murder in court Thursday in Spokane.

Second Degree Murder has a maximum penalty of life in prison. Graham had no felonies on his record and because of that he will serve the shortest amount of time.

Court documents said Graham faced a standard sentence of 123 months to 220 months with 36 months of community custody, which is 10 to 18 years.

Prosecutors said Graham admitted to stabbing Sharlotte McGill during a lengthy questioning with police.

Graham only had a record without felonies because robbery and harassment charges were dropped in a separate case.

The judge also ruled Graham will get treatment for drug use as part of his sentence.
