INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis probation officer has resigned amid criticism that he failed to report violations by a 16-year-old who was later charged with killing a North Allegheny graduate. Court documents show Simeon Adams remained free for a month while awaiting a hearing on 13 probation violations. Nine were violations of his house arrest.

The Indianapolis Star reports probation officer Tracy McDonald could have requested an arrest warrant after the third house arrest violation on Feb. 15. That would have kept the teen in detention until an April 7 hearing.

McDonald didn't report any violations until March 5 and recommended the teen remain on house arrest.

Adams is charged with fatally shooting Nathan Trapuzzano, 24, while he was taking a morning walk on April 1.

Probation officials didn't return calls seeking comment.
