COLLIN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM)- Wylie teen accused of killing a fellow student will be tried as an adult.

A Collin County judge made the ruling Friday. Brendan Bridges, who was 16 at the time, is one of two teens accused of killing 17-year old Ivan Mejia in a dispute over a girl in March of this year.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Bridges could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Collin County prosecutors said Bridges and another teen were caught trying to dump Mejia’s body.

Prosecutors accused the two planned the murder for nearly a week when they learned one of them was dating the same girl as Mejia.

Authorities say one of the suspects put Mejia in a headlock and pinched his nose, while the other stuffed a sock in his mouth.
