Murder defendant dies

Murder defendant dies: "Gamble, of Griffith, was charged with murder last year in connection with the January shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Benain. Police said Benain had been breaking into Gamble's car, which was parked in the lot at the Mansards Apartments, just before the shooting.

Court documents filed at the time said Gamble, a resident at the complex, told Griffith police he heard the alarm in his Chevrolet Tahoe go off and saw someone in his car.

Inside Gamble's car, police found a stereo forced from the dashboard and hanging from console wiring, court records state. Police said they also found a semiautomatic handgun belonging to Gamble lying on the ground next to the car.

Benain was taken to The Community Hospital in Munster, where he was pronounced dead of gunshot wounds.
Court records show the charges against Gamble were dismissed Wednesday. He had been set for trial Dec. 14."
