The Elkhart 4 story will be featured on Nightline Prime on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at 10:00 pm ET on ABC stations across the country. As noted in this prior post, two Indiana juveniles were convicted and sentenced pursuant to Indiana’s felony murder rule, despite neither being armed or killing anyone. But, they were present when a co-defendant was killed by the owner of the home that the juveniles entered during a burglary. The appeals continue to wind their way through the appellate process. The case was fully briefed as of May 21, 2014, but an opinion has not been issued by the Indiana Court of Appeals.
