Teen gets 64 years for fatal shooting of Indiana woman

August 31, 2018

An Elkhart teenager has been sentenced to 64 years in prison for fatally shooting a woman after an argument with her daughter.

Sixteen-year-old D’Angelo Honorable of Elkhart was 14 when he fired five shots at Teketa Hixson’s home in November 2016 after arguing with Hixson’s teenage daughter. One of the bullets entered the house and fatally struck the 34-year-old mother of four.

Honorable was charged as an adult and a jury convicted him of murder in early August. An Elkhart judge sentenced him Thursday to 64 years in prison, with five years suspended.

The Elkhart Truth reported that Honorable’s attorney had asked the judge to send his client to a juvenile facility until age 19, followed by a hearing to determine how much time he would spend in prison.
