Prom Night Murder Suspect in Court

The man accused of shooting and killing a Washington High School student on her prom night was in court this morning.

Twenty-one year old Larry Mitchell is charged in the murder of Javonda Tharbs last April in South Bend after he was arrested earlier this month.

Tharbs was gunned down before an after-prom-party and was shot twice at her sister's Beacon Heights apartment.

Prosecutors say Tharbs was an innocent victim, caught in an on-going feud.

Mitchell made his initial appearance on the murder charge this morning and he will be back in court in august.
