  A Utah man accused of helping a teenage girl kill herself and filming the act because he was fascinated with death has pleaded guilty to child abuse homicide.

In accepting a plea deal Tuesday in a Provo court, prosecutors say, 19-year-old Tyerell Joe Przybycien of Spanish Fork avoided a possible murder conviction that could have brought a sentence of 15 years to life in prison.

Przybycien faces a prison term of at least five years when he’s sentenced Dec. 7 and could still get a life sentence.

He acknowledged filming 16-year-old Jchandra Brown’s 2017 suicide in Payson Canyon after buying rope, tying the noose and speaking to her as she passed out and died.
