13-year-old to be sentenced in murder of 11-year-old brother in Streetsboro

STREETSBORO, Ohio - A 13-year-old charged with aggravated murder in the shooting death of his 11-year-old brother was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in Portage County court.  Instead, the sentencing hearing will continue with more testimony Wednesday morning.

Investigators said Caleb Lishing died after he was shot in the back by his brother, 13-year-old Elijah Lishing, at a home on Alden Drive in Streetsboro in April 2018.

Investigators said the shooting was a "premeditated act."

Streetsboro police say the 13-year-old broke into his grandfather's gun closet to steal a handgun and shot his brother as he lay in bed.
