Teen charged in murder of Dr. Kevin Rodgers makes first court appearance
Posted 10:13 AM, December 18, 2017



INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – An 18-year-old accused of murdering a well-known Indianapolis doctor made his first appearance before a judge Monday morning.

Ka’ron Bickham-Hurst was arrested last Friday in connection to the murder of Dr. Kevin Rodgers. Rodgers was found shot to death inside his northwest side home last month.

Bickham-Hurst faces charges that include felony murder and burglary in connection with Dr. Rodgers’ death. He also faces a burglary charge and four counts of theft related to several other cases.

Police believe Bickham-Hurst, a 15-year old male and possibly two other young people broke into Dr. Rodgers’ home on Nov. 20, the day the doctor was found shot to death in his home. At this time, it’s unclear who prosecutors believe actually shot the doctor.

Updated: Aug 31, 2018 04:24 PM EDT



INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) -- Two more teens have been charged in connection to the November shooting death of a former IU School of Medicine doctor. An 18-year-old and a 15-year-old were charged in December.

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office on Friday announced charges of felony murder and burglary against 18-year-old Nehemiah Merriweather, while Devon Seats, 17, faced charges of murder, felony murder and two charges of burglary. New information obtained by IMPD detectives led to the charges, the prosecutor's office said.

According to court documents obtained last December, Dr. Kevin Rodgers' home was shot and killed during the course of a robbery in his Ballinshire South home in the Ballinshire Estates neighborhood near the east shore of Eagle Creek Reservoir. IMPD officers say he was discovered by his wife.

15-year-old charged as adult in connection with 2017 murder of prominent Indianapolis doctor

Posted 3:20 PM, September 13, 2018



INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The case of a 15-year-old charged in connection with the murder of an Indianapolis doctor has been waived to adult court.

Tarius Blade faces three burglary charges in the case. Kevin Rodgers, a prominent local doctor, was killed on Nov. 20, 2017, after suspects broke into his home near Eagle Creek and shot him to death. Blade was 15 years old at the time of the crime.

FOX59 doesn’t typically name juvenile defenders. However, Blade is now charged as an adult.
