SALINA, Kan. (AP) – A teenager charged in the shooting death of a Salina girl will be tried as an adult.
Saline County District Judge Rene Young on Monday ordered that 17-year-old Andrew Woodring be tried as an adult in the May 6 shooting death of 17-year-old Allie Saum in Salina.
The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1Kh7Eyo) a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 10 for Woodring and his four co-defendants: Macio Palacio Jr., Stephen Gentry, Daniel Sims and Jerome Forbes. Those four defendants are all charged with first-degree murder.
Police say Saum’s murder was a case of mistaken identity. She was a passenger in a truck that police say some of the defendants mistakenly believed belonged to a person who had been in an earlier altercation with them.
