CARLISLE, Ind. (WISH) — Two men are now charged with murder following the June death of a Sullivan County 15-year-old, Indiana State Police said.
The additional charges were filed against Kyle Johnson and Matthew Earle on Monday after a review of evidence and witness statements indicated that the shooting death of Mezmariah Wilson was a murder.
Both now face charges of murder, attempted murder, carrying a handgun within 500 feet of a school property and pointing a firearm for their roles in the shooting that occurred near Carlisle Elementary School on June 10.
Johnson and Earle were initially only charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and obstruction of justice.
Both suspects are being held without bond.
