DUNCAN, Oklahoma -

A judge in Oklahoma has sentenced a teenager to life in prison without parole for the stabbing death of a 14-year-old girl.

Sixteen-year-old Michael Anthony Ray was charged as an adult in the June 2013 slaying of Alyssa Wiles of Duncan. Ray pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in December and was sentenced Wednesday by District Judge Joe Enos.

Prosecutors alleged that Ray stabbed Wiles with a kitchen knife because the girl had broken up with him.

The Duncan Banner reports that Ray's mother, Dawn Ray, urged leniency, saying that her son had a difficult upbringing.

In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juveniles were unconstitutional. But the high court left open the possibility for judges to impose no-parole sentences on a case-by-case basis.
