The murder happened just before 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27, 2018 in the 500 block of South Front Street.

Trenary was walking on the sidewalk and talking on his phone when witnesses said a white pickup truck stopped near him. A man then got out of the truck, went over to Trenary and shot him in the back of the head, the DA’s release says.

A 16-year-old girl was also arrested in the case, and her case was handled in Juvenile Court.
