WARSAW, Ind. -- A northern Indiana teenager previously sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty at age 12 to helping kill a friend's stepfather is scheduled to get a new sentence.

Fifteen-year-old Paul Gingerich is scheduled to be sentenced Monday in a Kosciusko County court after his previous conviction was thrown out by the state appeals court. A plea agreement announced in December could allow Gingerich to leave a juvenile prison this summer.

The agreement calls 25 years of state supervision. It allows that sentence to be served in a group home, community corrections, on probation or on parole if he's well-behaved or in a maximum-security facility if he's not.

Gingerich was one of three juveniles charged with killing 49-year-old Phillip Danner in April 2010 at his home near Syracuse.
