GOSHEN — A new trial has been set in May for an Elkhart man whose 2009 murder conviction was vacated this year.

Dentrell Brown, 26, was convicted of killing Gerald Wenger in March 2008 at age 13. He was sentenced to 60 years in prison, with five years suspended, following a joint trial with then-18-year-old codefendant Joshua Love.
