Kosciusko County Prosecutor Dan Hampton filed a motion today in Kosciusko County Circuit Court to substitute the second charge against Brandon Thomas Woody from attempted murder to murder.
Woody, 23, 605 W. North St., Syracuse, was initially charged Thursday afternoon with murder and attempted murder, following a double shooting earlier that day in Syracuse.
Joshua R. Knisley was found dead at the scene. Tara Thornburg was flown from Syracuse to Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne. Notification of her death was received this afternoon from the Allen County Coroner’s office.
Woody is being held without bond.
