INDIANAPOLIS — An Elkhart teen’s conviction for attempted murder has been reversed by the state appeals court, which says his mother should have been allowed to attend the trial.

Byron Harris Jr. was sentenced to 37 years in prison in July after a jury convicted him of a non-fatal shooting at age 15. Jurors learned that he shot a man in the leg outside River Run Apartments on June 11, 2018.
