They had a look around the spare bedroom and then indicated to each other it was time to leave. Layman heard the boom of a gun and scrambled to hide in the bedroom closet. Danzele Johnson fell into the closet beside him. Layman crouched down in terror, and noticed that he too had been shot and that blood was streaming down his right leg. Rodney Scott was not, as the boys had assumed, out of the house.
He had been asleep upstairs and when he heard the commotion of the break-in grabbed his handgun. He is dressed in standard-issue khaki and grey, his hair cropped short in classic prison style. The charge was not a mistake.
Felony murder: why a teenager who didn't kill anyone faces 55 years in jail
At the end of a four-day trial in September in which they were all judged as adults, Layman, Sharp and Sparks were found guilty of felony murder. Quiroz pleaded guilty under a plea deal and was given 45 years. Layman was dispatched to the prison, still aged 17, to begin his 55 years in a lock-up cell. The judges have asked lawyers for Layman and for the prosecution to address that specific question: is it consistent with Indiana law that he and his friends who were all unarmed, who fired not a single shot, and who in fact were themselves fired upon, one fatally, by a third party — the homeowner Rodney Scott — could be put away for decades for murder?
Murder and manslaughter are two types of homicide (the killing of a human being).
The conundrum is not an arcane one. Some 46 states in the union have some form of felony murder rule on their statute books. Of those, 11 states unambiguously allow for individuals who commit a felony that ends in a death to be charged with murder even when they were the victims, rather than the agents, of the killing. In Indiana the wording of the felony murder law is more nuanced than those of the other 11 states. Cara and Joel Wieneke, the legal duo who represent Layman , said that at the heart of the argument they will be presenting to the supreme court is the issue of agency.
Blake Layman has had plenty of time to contemplate his action, and its consequences, since that Wednesday afternoon in I made this bad decision and it derailed my entire life. I just wish I could go back and tell my year-old self to see sense.

I know I committed a crime. If they had brought me a burglary plea bargain I would have signed it, because I was guilty. But he continues to feel deep remorse for what happened. I was apologising to him, and to the homeowner — both of them really. So I said I was going to do right when I get out, not just for me but also for him. Today Layman is housed in a wing of Wabash prison where inmates are put as a reward for best behaviour.
