The 15-year-old suspect arrested in the deadly crime spree earlier this year with 17-year-old Sirquain Burr will face charges as an adult.

Juvenile Judge Marilyn Moores waived Gabriel Edwards' juvenile status on Friday.

The pair are accused if killing John Yingling during a robbery and shooting another man in a separate armed robbery during a crime spree that ended with them crashing their stolen getaway car after a police chase from Marion to Hendricks County.

On February 13, 2013, police believe the two teens robbed a woman in her garage, attempted to rob an 80-year-old man and then shot and killed Yingling, who was in a truck in his own driveway on the Indianapolis south side.

The pair are also accused of shooting a man who happened to be out walking his dog that day.

Edwards is accused of driving the car over the course of several hours that day. He faces multiple charges of robbery, attempted robbery, car theft, murder, attempted murder along with other charges.

The two young men have criminal records that include robbery, assault and gun crimes.
