GOSHEN — An Elkhart man has admitted to murder in a plea agreement that will see child molesting charges dismissed.

Allen Sage, 31, pleaded guilty Thursday to the June 22 shooting death of 49-year-old Kenneth Black following a two-vehicle crash. Sage in court said he was acting to protect his father but acknowledged that the killing was not justified.

Although the judge dropped the molestation charges, inmates with children won't.


He will serve about 49 years at the least.
