Warsaw Boy Charged at 12 in Killing to be Sentenced

WARSAW, Ind. (AP): An Indiana teenager who pleaded guilty at age 12 to helping kill a friend's stepfather is headed to court to learn his new sentence under a deal with prosecutors.
 
Fifteen-year-old Paul Gingerich was sentenced to 25 years in prison, but he successfully appealed his case being waived to adult court. He's scheduled to be sentenced Monday in Kosciusko Circuit Court.
 
Gingerich agreed this month to plead guilty to the same conspiracy to commit murder charge he did three years ago and to receive the same 25-year sentence. But where he spends those years will depend on his behavior behind bars.
 
Gingerich was one of three juveniles charged with killing 49-year-old Phillip Danner in April 2010 as part of a plot to run away to Arizona.
