INDIANAPOLIS – The two teens charged as adults in a deadly February crime spree could be tried as co-defendants.
Prosecutors filed a motion to have Sirquain Burr and Gabriel Edwards tried together. The teens are charged in a string of crimes, including the deadly shooting of a south side man in his driveway. The spree ended in a multi-vehicle crash in Brownsburg in February.
In June, a judge ruled that Edwards, who was 15 during the crime spree and has since turned 16, would have his case waived to adult court. Burr, who was 17 and has since turned 18, was also charged as an adult. Charges against them include murder, attempted murder and robbery.
Edwards’ attorney doesn’t object to the motion, but Burr’s attorney does. A judge is expected to rule on the motion in the coming weeks.
