Trial for 3 teens facing felony murder charges to begin

GOSHEN, Ind. — Three teens charged with felony murder in connection with deadly home invasion in Elkhart County last year are expected to go on trial Monday.

In October 2012, police say that Levi Sparks, Blake Layman and Anthony Sharp attempted to break-in into an Elkhart County man's home with two others.

The homeowner was inside the home at the time. 

He fired a shot that killed 21-year-old Danzele Johnson, one of the suspects.

A 17-year-old pleaded guilty to felony murder last year. A judge sentenced him to 45 years in prison.
