MARION, Ind. – Two people face murder charges in connection with a double shooting in Marion.
Police arrested William Robert McCarty and Christa Lea Kelly early Monday morning. They both face the following charges: conspiracy to commit murder (level 1 felony), attempted murder (level 1 felony), battery by means of a deadly weapon (level 5 felony) and murder.
The investigation began on March 9 after a double shooting in Luida Trailer Park.
Medics flew Cheryl Mann, 65, to a Fort Wayne Hospital via Life Line helicopter to be treated for a gunshot wound to the head. She later died as a result of her injuries. Mann’s grandson, 30-year-old Jonathan M. Lovell, was shot in his right leg and left arm.
Police believe the shooting stemmed from an argument between the victim Lovell, McCarty and Kelly.
