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.
