The 20-year-old stood accused of shooting 15-year-old Sunny Ravi Patel in the head before taking cash from a Mr. Hero sandwich shop in Cleveland Heights on Oct. 14.

Perry is now scheduled to be sentenced Friday and could face life in prison without parole.

Perry's attorney didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday. He previously said Perry was "upset with what he did" but wouldn't elaborate.
