A local teen is expected to learn her fate after pleading guilty to luring another teen to his death in 2009.

Emily Ball, now 18, was one of six people charged in the murder of 17-year-old Travis White, who was beaten and stabbed to death at a Covington residence. Ball was only 14 at the time of the murder.

At the age of 16, Ball pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of conspiracy to commit assault and was sentenced to serve 15 years.

A Kenton County judge must now decide whether to place Ball on probation, send her back to a juvenile facility until she is 21 or transfer her to an adult prison.

Kasey Dodson and Brian Golsby are each serving life sentences for their roles in White's murder.

Ball's hearing began Friday morning. Several witnesses are testifying, and the judge is not expected to have a decision until next week.
