Share this post

The murder trial of an alleged gang member began Tuesday in Lake County Criminal Court. 23 year old Kevin Strong is accused of killing Jose Melendez, of East Chicago, in July of 2010, and is alleged to have played a role in the shooting death of Cordell Allen, also of East Chicago. The Times reports both shootings occurred just minutes from one another and few blocks apart. 22 year old Jeremy Brazill, a co-defendant, entered a plea agreement in 2011 to reduced charges, and is expected to testify against Strong.
