PHOENIX -- A 15-year-old girl who was charged as an adult in the fatal shooting of another teen has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors said Ladajianna Mosely also was sentenced Friday to four years of supervised probation.

Mosely was charged with second-degree murder and first-degree burglary.

Phoenix police said 17-year-old Raymond Berryman died March 18 in front of Mosely's home.

Mosely told police that she, Berryman and a 16-year-old boy burglarized a home in the neighborhood earlier that day.

The teens were accused of stealing a shotgun, a .45-caliber handgun and a revolver and were playing with the guns later.

Mosely allegedly pointed a handgun at Berryman and pulled the trigger, believing it wasn't loaded.

Berryman was shot in the chest and died at a hospital.
