Newton County prosecutors intend to seek life without parole among new murder charges for two men accused of killing three people in Newton County in late August.
24-year-old Sebastian Wedding of Lake County, Indiana, and 24-year-old Derrick Cardosi of Sumava Resorts, Indiana, are each charged with three counts of murder, auto theft and theft.
The charges stem from the deaths of 39-year-old Kimberly Spears, 23-year-old Richard Thomas and 20-year-old Justin Babbs. All the victims were from Newton County.
All three victims died from multiple stab wounds, according to Newton County Coroner Scott McCord.
Prosecutors are now seeking additional charges of two counts of murder and life without parole.
Prosecutor Jeffrey Drinski listed three reasons they are seeking life:
1. The men committed murder while committing burglary.
2. The men committed murder while committing robbery.
3. The men committed murder while committing another murder.
Court documents state the men stole Thomas’ car, electronic games, an electronic tablet and Nike Air Jordan shoes.
Both men are being held in the Newton County Jail without bond.
