Indiana Lawyer Rehearing

Brian Kendrick was convicted and sentenced for the 2008 shooting of Indianapolis bank teller Katherin Shuffield, who was nearly six months pregnant with twins at the time. Both babies died as a result of the shooting. Kendrick was found guilty Jan. 30 of attempted murder, robbery, two counts of feticide, and carrying a handgun without a license.

Marion Superior Judge Kurt Eisgruber sentenced Kendrick to a total of 53 years – 30 years for the attempted robbery conviction; 14 for the robbery conviction; 4 years each for the feticide convictions; and 1 year for the carrying a handgun without a license conviction.

As a result of the bank shooting, the Indiana General Assembly last year passed statutory changes increasing the penalty for feticide to a maximum of 20 years in prison. However, in handling the case that began before the new law took effect, Judge Eisgruber was bound by the old law's limits.
