WILKES-BARRE — A man faces up to 50 years in prison for killing another man in Hazleton.

Mitchell Dedes pleaded guilty Friday to third degree murder and robbery charges.

Authorities say Dedes and another man got into a fight with Aaron Reznick, 29, of Ebervale, over an iPhone last August and stomped on the man’s head until he died.

Dedes faces between 25 and 50 years in prison when he is sentenced in October.
