Suspect in teen's murder arraigned

(Continued)

In handing out her sentence, Shewmaker said he added time because Losee was on probation for a felony charge of receiving stolen property when she took part in the robbery.

During the robbery, the store owner was assaulted and injured and money was stolen.

Cocaine sentence

James D. Rice, 32, Elkhart, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for four counts of dealing cocaine. Three years of the sentence will be suspended and a $7,000 fine was suspended. He must also perform 250 hours of community service.

Edward Wing, 40, Elkhart, was sentenced to 38 years in prison with two years suspended on armed robbery and forgery counts.

Wing is serving time in Michigan for robbing the Hilltop Laundry in Union and a bank in Cadillac last year.

He was charged with robbing branches of Mutual and Chase banks in Elkhart County and five counts of forgery for stealing checks from his parents and attempting to cash them at a Key bank.

Judge Shewmaker said the Indiana sentences will be served after Wing serves his time in Michigan.

Test tampering

During a plea agreement hearing, Brandon Robinson admitted he tried to get around a routine drug screening while he was on probation. He wasn’t successful.

On Thursday Robinson admitted he had smoked marijuana and then used a device to attempt to alter a urine test.

In response, Shemaker sentenced Robinson to finish his sentence for a 2003 robbery charge, sending him back to prison to fulfill his 10-year prison sentence with eight years suspended.

Robinson was originally sentenced to prison for attacking a woman outside a drugstore and breaking her leg while stealing her purse. He still owes the woman almost $13,000 in restitution.
