MONTICELLO — Three people have been charged with two counts of murder each in the shooting deaths of two brothers in their northwestern Indiana home.
Breann Cobb of Monon; her boyfriend, Marlin Seay of Lafayette; and Dorian Hale, also of Lafayette, are charged with killing Mathew Benyon, 20, and Daniel Benyon, 24, White County prosecutors said Wednesday.
A cellphone and canister of pepper spray that Cobb left at the brothers' home in Wolcott, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Lafayette, linked the trio to the crimes, court documents state.
Police found her phone and pepper spray after a man discovered the brothers dead inside their house last week, according to the court documents and statements by White County Sheriff Bill Brooks, the Journal and Courier reported.
Police recovered two firearms, bullets and shell casings, an affidavit said.
The cellphone included photos of Seay with one of the weapons found at the scene and text messages about the planning of the robbery, prosecutors said.
Cobb told investigators they went to the house on Oct. 21 to buy marijuana. While she was inside, Hale came in and started shooting, she said.
