On Tuesday, Elijah Ibrahim Parchman was found guilty of Murder and Attempted Murder following a 2019 shooting incident.

The 21-year-old Evansville man was originally arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail early on the morning of April 6, 2019, after one man was shot and killed and another was injured.

“The victims in this case deserved justice after Mr. Parchman’s extremely careless actions led to irreparable damage,” explained Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Nick Hermann. “This was a chaotic scene with many moving parts. Deputy Prosecutor John Bober, Deputy Prosecutor Josh Hutcheson, and numerous Evansville Police Detectives presented an extremely strong case for the jury to consider.”

Parchman was also found guilty of a Firearm Sentencing Enhancement which will add time to his final sentence.

He'll be sentenced in Vanderburgh County Circuit Court on Dec. 14.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
