July 22, 2010 Updated Jul 22, 2010 at 4:19 PM EST

KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A Kosciusko County judge ruled 12-year-old Paul Gingerich will go through adult court, despite his attorney's efforts to have the boy tried in the juvenile system.

Gingerich is accused of helping his 15-year-old friend, Colt Lundy, kill Lundy's stepfather in April.

Lundy's attorney, David Kolbe, says the judge made this ruling Thursday after a month of deliberation.

Kolbe says Gingerich's family has since fired his attorney and will be seeking new counsel.

The boys trial in adult court is set for October 5th.
