Teen suspect in Grace Ross’ murder found competent to stand trial

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office says the suspect in the murder of 6-year-old Grace Ross was found competent to stand trial.

The suspect was 14-years-old when he allegedly killed Ross in New Carlisle.

His trial is scheduled to begin on December 9.

The suspect is facing a delinquency petition on charges that would be murder and child molestation if presented in adult court. Although his name has been released with court documents, ABC57 is choosing not to name the suspect because his case remains in juvenile court.

Ross was found deceased around 8 p.m. on March 12, 2021.
