Two white teenagers were charged with murder Tuesday in what prosecutors said was a racially motivated drive-by shooting of a black teenager in Elkhart. A newspaper reported that 19-year-old Sasezley Richardson was killed in an effort by one of the defendants to gain membership in a white supremacist organization. At a court appearance Tuesday, a judge entered not guilty pleas for the alleged gunman, Jason Powell, 19, and his friend Alex Witmer, 18. Neither man had an attorney.
