Jose Quiroz, the man part of the Elkhart Four who pleaded guilty to felony murder, had his conviction modified and his sentence changed during a post-conviction relief hearing on Thursday, Feb. 11.
Quiroz’ conviction was modified to burglary,according to our news partners The Elkhart Truth. He was re-sentenced to 10 years in prison.
This comes after three of his co-conspirators — Levi Sparks, Blake Layman and Anthony Sharp — had their felony murder convictions overturned and modified to burglary. They each received shorter sentences and Sparks has since been released from prison.
