Boys Detained In Peru Charged With Murder

Posted by wlpo on April 23, 2010

Two of three boys found in Peru Wednesday morning are charged with murdering an Indiana man.

A 12 year old boy and 15 year old were in Kosciusko County Court yesterday and charged as juveniles with murder.  The third boy detained in Peru Wednesday morning for the murder, another 12-year old boy is charged with aiding and causing a murder.  A hearing is set for next week to determine if the boys should be tried as adults.

They were found in Peru Wednesday morning after police got a call about a suspicious car at Wal-Mart.  Based on evidence they gathered, Peru Police called officials in Indiana to have them check on Phillip Danner of Cromwell, Indiana.  Danner was later found dead in his home.  The three boys were then held at the Peru Police Department until Indiana officials flew them back to their county.

The boys are all from Indiana with no local ties.  The 15-year old is the step-son of the victim.
