Teen reaches plea deal in 2010 Enchanted Hills killing

WARSAW — An Indiana youth who was sentenced to 25 years after pleading guilty at age 12 to helping kill a friend's stepfather could leave prison as early as next year.

Fifteen-year-old Paul Gingerich agreed to be waived to adult court Monday as part of a plea agreement that could see him leave a juvenile facility once he completes his high school diploma.

Gingerich would remain under state supervision for 25 years but could be placed in a group home, community corrections or even paroled.

Gingerich was charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the shooting of 49-year-old Phillip Danner in April 2010 at his home near Lake Wawasee. The state appeals court last year ruled that a Kosciusko County judge rushed when he waived the case to adult court.
