An Ohio man has avoided the death penalty in the killing of a 16-year-old pregnant girl.
Formal sentencing and statements from the family and friends of 16-year-old Anna Karam are set for May 23.
Police say Anna was baby-sitting at an Akron home on Jan. 6, 2013, when Stoddard came in through a back door and started firing.
Anna, who was four months pregnant, was killed. A 19-year-old woman was shot in the head but survived.
Witnesses said Stoddard had been looking for his ex-girlfriend, who wasn't at the home.
