Elkhart:

Man in court again

GOSHEN -- A man sentenced for helping in the aftermath of an Elkhart murder was back in circuit court Thursday, this time to face new gun charges.

Steven Peepers, 23, of 910 Cedar St., faces a charge of carrying a handgun without a license and of criminal recklessness, which could send him back to prison for up to four years.

He got out in January on a charge of assisting a criminal, but could go back for another two years because he was on probation on that charge.

Peepers dumped the guns Stephen Reeves used to kill Garry Shuff Jr. in 2005. Peepers testified against Reeves and helped prosecutors convict Reeves of murder.

Elkhart Circuit Court:

* Tyjuan Henderson, 26, of 13623 Northlawn, Detroit, was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison for cocaine possession.

* Dwone Hibbler, 19, of 1629 S. 10th St., Elkhart, was sentenced Thursday to nine years in prison for an Aug. 29, 2006, robbery at a convenience store outside Elkhart.

* Marlon Tidwell, 40, of 415 E. Wolf Ave., was sentenced Thursday to eight years in prison for a January robbery at an Elkhart market and for a November robbery at an Elkhart fast-food restaurant.

* Herbert S. Foust, 24, who has no known address, was sentenced Thursday to seven years in prison and one on probation for robbing a woman outside her home Feb. 4 in Goshen.

 In this Oct. 24, 2014 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey, the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano that began June 27 is seen as it crossed Apa?a Street near Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near the active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across the country road and edged closer to homes. The USGS says the flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 meters) wide and moving northeast at about 10 yards (nine meters) per hour. It's currently about six-tenths of a mile (one kilometer) from Pahoa Village Road, the town's main street. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
