Slain Indianapolis siblings remembered at memorial service

September 8, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Hundreds of people have attended memorial services for two teenage siblings who were fatally shot in Indianapolis last month.

The Indianapolis Star reports friends and family gathered Saturday at Mount Carmel Church to remember 16-year-old Nicholas Nelson and his 15-year-old sister, Ashlynn Nelson.

Their 13-year-old cousin, Starice Bond, says she’ll forever treasure memories of the teens. That includes Nicholas teasing her and Ashlynn dancing.

The siblings were fatally shot on the morning of Aug. 23, just before the two would have normally taken a bus to school.

Prosecutors want to try a 15-year-old boy as an adult in the killings. The teen is in a juvenile detention center until a Sept. 24 hearing that’ll determine whether the teen will be waived into adult court.
