Ind. Courts - LaPorte County judge rejects plea agreement

Related to the ILB post from earlier today, this long Oct. 2nd Michigan City News-Dispatch story by Kelley Smith begins:

MICHIGAN CITY — The murder case pending against Tommy Larue Shannon Jr. isn't over, as Judge Kathleen Lang on Thursday struck down the plea agreement he had reached with the state in August.

Shannon, 23, is accused of having beaten his girlfriend's son, 2-year-old Nizeir Brown, to death on Aug. 13, 2013.

A quick search of the ILB for "judge rejects plea" disclosed a number of posts relating to rejected plea agreements.
