15-Year-Old Alleged Killer To Be tried In Adult Court

June 28, 2013 Updated Jan 8, 2014 at 3:01 PM EST

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.theindychannel.com) -- A 15-year-old suspect in a deadly February crime spree will be tried in adult court, according to a judge's ruling released Friday.

Gabriel Edwards, 15, and Sirquain Burr, 17, were arrested Feb. 13 after the younger teen crashed at 56th Street and Northfield Drive in Brownsburg at the end of a chase, the final act of a day of robbing and shooting, police said.

The teens are accused of killing John Yingling in the driveway of his home on Indianapolis' south side and shooting Rex Souter, who was walking his dog in a neighborhood, before the chase.

"Given the heinous nature of these offenses -- we're dealing with murder, attempted murder, A felony robbery, B felony robbery -- this was a crime spree," Deputy Prosecutor Peter Haughan told RTV6 in February. "This was a situation where people out in the public were put at risk, in danger. He's beyond the rehabilitation of the juvenile justice system."
