A Virginia teenager faces 60 years in prison after admitting that he murdered a 13-year-old girl and it “felt good.”

Dylan Williams, 16, learned his sentence for the shooting of Lucia Bremer in March 2021.

A mother told a Henrico Circuit Court sentencing hearing that her 11-year-old daughter was working with Williams in a family garage when he pointed a gun at her head. She slapped it away and ran inside a home.

Authorities say Williams then ran inside and shot Bremer nine times, using a gun belonging to his legal guardian. Bremer died at a hospital.

A neuropsychologist who examined the suspect testified that Williams had thoughts about murder for a year. He chose to kill Bremer after visiting a high school and watching a soccer practice.

"He wanted to put enough bullets in her to ensure she was killed," WTVR quoted Dr. Salmaan Khawaja as saying. The doctor added Williams "felt good" about what he did.

But Williams apologized at Friday's hearing for his conduct, saying he would trade his life for Bremer's if that was possible.

“I'm not God, so I can't do that," Williams said.

Williams was not sentenced to life in prison, which stunned Bremer's father.

Defense attorneys said he could be rehabilitated. But Khawaja called Williams a high-risk candidate for recidivism because he has antisocial personality disorder.

WRIC-TV reports Williams agreed to a plea bargain in January for both first and second-degree murder, as well as a firearms possession charge.
