Sentencing proceedings continued Wednesday in the case of 16-year-old Aiden Fucci, who pleaded guilty last month to first-degree murder in the stabbing death of 13-year-old classmate Tristyn Bailey in Florida 2021. 

The case received national attention after evidence showed Bailey suffered 114 stab wounds on May 9, 2021. Fucci was 14 at the time and charged as an adult.

Judge R. Lee Smith must decide how long to sentence 16-year-old Fucci from 40 years to life in prison. Due to being a juvenile, Fucci’s first-degree guilty plea doesn’t qualify for a possible death sentence. The sentencing hearings are expected to extend into the week with potentially a couple dozen more people called to testify.
