Judge rejects bail for suspect in double-slayingJuly 25, 2019
By The Associated Press
CROWN POINT — A judge has rejected bail for an Indianapolis man accused in the fatal shootings of a Gary woman and her 13-year-old son.
The Lake County judge denied bail last week for 39-year-old Darren Taylor, who's charged with murder and burglary in the March 23 killings of 35-year-old Temia Haywood and Lavell Edmond in their Gary home.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that relatives identified Taylor as one of two men seen in a doorbell security video taken at Haywood's home the day of the slayings.
Authorities haven't identified that second man. Taylor and that accomplice are both accused in the killings.
Taylor's attorney, John Cantrell, says authorities' evidence is insufficient to prove Taylor committed the crime.
Court records say Taylor knew Haywood, who had been romantically involved with his father.
