Murder Plea in Teen Murder Case

KSAL StaffApril 19, 2016

  • attempted 1st degree murder
  • shooting at an occupied vehicle
  • conspiracy to commit aggravated battery
  • Woodring, who was 17-years-old at the time, is accused of being among a gathering of a group of five people who went to seek retaliation for a previous incident in which one of them was punched. He is not accused of firing the fatal shots. The case stems from the shooting death of 17-year-old Allie Saum. She was shot and killed on May 6th, 2015. Shots were fired at a truck as it drove eastbound in the 500 block of Russell. The truck was mis-identified as being connected to the earlier altercation. Saum was a passenger in the truck, and was hit by one of five shots that were fired. The plea came just a couple of days after one of the other defendants in the case, 19-year-old Stephen Gentry, was found guilty by a jury of all charges he was facing. Those charges include:
    • 1st degree murder
    • attempted 1st degree murder
    • shooting at an occupied vehicle
    • conspiracy to commit aggravated battery
    The other defendants still facing charges in the case include:
    • 22-year-old Macio Palacio
    • 19-year-old Jerome Forbes
    • 20-year-old Daniel Sims
    Sims testified against Gentry during the trial, in exchange for a reduction of the charges against him. The other two defendants will each face trial separately. Each face the same charges that include:
    • 1st degree murder
    • attempted 1st degree murder
    • shooting at an occupied vehicle
    • conspiracy to commit aggravated battery
    Gentry was the first of those accused in the case to face trial. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday, July 8th. Woodring was initially charged as a juvenile in the case, but later it was ruled that he would face charges as an adult. He is also scheduled to be sentenced on July 8th.]]>
