Elkhart Four: Blake Layman to be released from Wabash Valley prison on Thursday

The second of the Elkhart Four to be released from prison will become a free man for the first time in almost three years on Thursday, March 31.

Blake Layman, 19, will be released from Wabash Valley Correctional Facility about two months after co-conspirator Levi Sparks was released from the same prison.

Their release dates were updated after they were re-sentenced and the Indiana Department of Correction gave them credit for time served, good behavior and completing prison programs, like the GED program.

Quiroz is expected to be released in 2016 or 2017, while Sharp’s release date is scheduled for 2018.
