Prosecutors in Ripley County yesterday announced Nickalas J. Kedrowitz, now 15 years old, will be tried as an adult.  Police say the young man was just 13 years old when he killed his 23-month-old half-sister on May 6, 2017, and then killed his 11-month-old stepbrother just two months later. Both children died of suffocation in the family’s Osgood home,

A Ripley County judge found Kedrowitz competent to stand trial Aug. 30. His double-murder trial is scheduled to begin February 18, 2020.
