By The Associated Press
VERSAILLES — An Indiana boy who was 13 when he allegedly killed his two young siblings will be tried as an adult in their suffocation deaths.
A Ripley County judge found Nickalas J. Kedrowitz competent to stand trial before waiving him into adult court on Aug. 30. His double-murder trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 18, 2020.
Kedrowitz, who's now 15, was arrested in August 2018 in the May 2017 killing of his 23-month-old half-sister, Desiree McCartney, and the July 2017 killing of his 11-month-old stepbrother, Nathaniel Ritz.
Both were slain at the family's home in Osgood, about 60 miles (96 kilometers) southeast of Indianapolis.
Ripley County Prosecutor Richard Hertel tells the Madison Courier that Indiana law allows juveniles as young as 12 to be tried as adults for murder.
