LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The 13-year-old Cape Coral boy facing adult murder charges for killing a homeless man earlier this month has pleaded not guilty to the crime.

Yoel Munoz is accused of stabbing 51-year-old Thomas Bergstrom to death at a homeless camp off Pine Island Road.

Munoz is not eligible for the death penalty because of his age.

If convicted, he faces 25 years to life in prison.
