GOSHEN — Three men facing burglary and robbery charges in connection with a home invasion in Goshen are scheduled to go to trial Monday, June 30.

Armando Gonzalez, 18; Davon N. Crenshaw, 19; and Montrail D. Williams, 20, had a status conference hearing Thursday morning at Elkhart’s Circuit Court. 

The three men are charged with robbery, burglary, criminal confinement and conspiracy to commit a burglary. They are accused of breaking into a mobile home in Goshen and robbing a family at gunpoint.

One of the co-defendants, Antoine McDuffy, pleaded guilty to his charges in March. He was sentenced a few weeks later to 48 years in prison.

During their hearing, the defendants’ attorneys asked for the joint case to be severed. They also asked for the trials to be rescheduled.

But judge Terry Shewmaker told the attorneys to file written motions.

The trial could still go Monday, but there is another trial with higher priority scheduled in circuit court for that day. Louis Fisher, charged with robbery, is scheduled to go to trial Monday.

If the defendants file written motions, the court could reschedule the trials.
