OKLAHOMA CITY -- The 13-year-old Oklahoma City boy who admitted to police he shook his 9-month-old sister won't face a death penalty if convicted in the case.
Thirteen year old Crystian Rivera is being held in the Oklahoma County Jail without bond on a complaint of first-degree murder.
That charge carries the death penalty, but in Oklahoma, the minimum age for execution is 16-years-old.
If Rivera is formally charged with murder in the first degree, he could get life or life without parole.
Court documents show he admits to shaking his 9-month-old sister, Linda, who later died at a hospital. Rivera also admitted it happened after he became frustrated with a video game and the baby's crying.
He's being treated like an adult in this case.
