Teen Appears in Court after 73-Year-Old’s Death

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP)  A judge has entered a not guilty plea for a teenager charged with killing a 73-year-old man in a suburban Indianapolis neighborhood.

 

Seventeen-year-old Maxwell Winkler heard a murder charge read against him Wednesday in a Noblesville courtroom. The Hamilton Southeastern High School student is being held without bond.

 

Hamilton Superior Court Judge William Hughes set an April 7 trial date. 

 

Fishers police arrested Winkler Tuesday in connection with the slaying of Henry Kim. Kim was found shot three times with his throat cut Saturday in a subdivision near Geist Reservoir where they both lived. Investigators haven't revealed a motive.

 

A message seeking comment was left for Winkler's attorney, Jim Voyles of Indianapolis.

 

Longtime friend Charles Chae described Kim as a fun-loving man who loved to sing and golf.
