A football field murder case has come to a close in Roselle.

Derrick Dunn pleaded guilty Friday to killing Damel Mitchell five years ago.

Police found Mitchell with gunshot wounds on the Sylvester Land football field in 2012.

Investigators say Dunn is one of three men charged with luring the 17-year-old to the field in a botched robbery attempt that led to the murder.

Dunn faces 25 years in prison when he is sentenced in June.
