YOUNGSTOWN – A man charged in the abuse death of a Struthers teen pleaded guilty this morning.
Zaryl Bush, 43, pleaded guilty to murder, four counts of child endangering and two counts of intimidation for the death of Teddy Foltz earlier this year.

Foltz, 14, died Jan. 26 of head trauma after he was taken first to Akron Children’s Hospital Boardman Campus and then St. Elizabeth Health Center.
