Colt Lundy transferred to work release

January 2, 2019

A Kosciusko County man sent to prison as a teenager for the fatal shooting of his stepfather was transferred to work release today. 

Colt Lundy, 23, will be under limited supervision at the South Bend Community Re-Entry facility in South Bend, the Indiana Department of Correction reported. A judge in November agreed to reduce the 25-year prison term he was given, and Lundy is scheduled to finish his sentence on home detention beginning in March. 

In April 2010, Lundy, 15 at the time, and 12-year-old Paul Gingerich shot Philip Danner in his Cromwell home in April 2010. They pleaded guilty as adults to conspiracy to commit murder, and both were sentenced to 25 years behind bars. 

Gingerich spent seven years in prison and was released in 2017.
