3 Arrests Made in Murder of Indiana Pastor's Pregnant Wife
Police have arrested three men in connection with the murder of an Indiana pastor's pregnant wife.
Larry Taylor, 18, is facing a preliminary murder charge for the killing of 28-year-old Amanda Blackburn, while the other two suspects, Jalen Watson and Diano Gordon, were also taken into custody on unrelated charges.
Police say they believe the three men entered the unlocked home on the morning of Nov. 10 after the pastor went to the gym.
Authorities allege that while two of the suspects left the house to withdraw money with the pastor's ATM card, Taylor raped Blackburn before shooting her, FoxNews.com reported.
The crime took place with the couple's 15-month-old son lying in his crib upstairs
Investigators linked the suspects to the Blackburn case through ATM receipts found in a car the three had allegedly stolen earlier this month. Crime lab technicians are also analyzing a gun that was found in the yard of a home near the Blackburns to determine if it had any connection to the case.
At least one of the suspects is cooperating with police. The suspects are linked to three other burglaries in the Indianapolis area and another rape case.
