EPHRATA, WA - A 23-year-old accused of killing a boy when he was just a boy is facing several years behind bars.

Grant County prosecutors say they'll seek a 20-year prison term for Evan Savoie, whose childhood murder conviction was overturned.
The now 23-year-old Savoie, who is facing a second trial, pleaded guilty last week to killing 13-year-old Craig Sorger in Ephrata in 2003.
He faces between 12 to 20 years for second-degree murder. Savoie's defense attorney says he'll argue for a lesser sentence.
Savoie and another defendant Jake Eakin were 12 when they were charged with beating and stabbing of Sorger in a case that drew wide attention.
Savoie was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 26 years in prison in 2005, but his conviction was later overturned because of a trial error.
A sentencing date has not been set.
