CHESAPEAKE - The trial has started for a 13-year-old boy accused of shooting and killing a Chesapeake girl.

The teen is charged with manslaughter in the death of 12-year-old Cee Cee Walker in January. His name is not being released because he is a minor.

Police say the boy was in Owens Village, showing off a gun he'd gotten from a friend's house. They say he pointed the gun at his own head and then at Cee Cee's and that's when it went off.

Walker's mother has said she'll forgive the boy, but she wants him to pay for the crime.

The trial by a judge in the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court started Tuesday afternoon. The judge said the boy has pleaded guilty. A lawyer says the boy admitted to killing Cee Cee and said they were playing a game of Russian roulette.

The victim's mother begs to differ.

'Clear the record on Russian roulette. My daughter feared guns, so it wasn't a matter of her playing Russian roulette,' said Lisa Walker.

Prosecutor David Whitted says the trial should wrap up quickly. If convicted, the teen could get 30 days in detention, probation or the maximum sentence - staying in juvenile detention until he is 21 years old.

The judge says she needs more information before she decides on a punishment. She wants to learn about the boy's family and school history. No parents have been charged in connection to this case.

A sentencing hearing has been set for August 23.
