UPDATE: Witness aided in sketch of suspect in Indiana teens' deaths

Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley discusses the sketch released Monday of a man believed to be connected to murder of Liberty German and Abigail Williams in February in Delphi, Indiana. The bodies of German, 14, and Williams, 13, were found a day after they were hiking near Monon High Bridge east of Delphi. 

DELPHI, Ind. — A northern Indiana county prosecutor is stepping down as police investigations continue into the deaths of two teenagers near a recreation trail and four young sisters during a house fire.

Carroll County Prosecutor Rob Ives says he'll retire at the end of December with a year left in his term. Ives says he made the decision for private and personal reasons.

The prosecutor's resignation comes as a November 2016 fire in Flora that killed four sisters between ages 5 and 11 remains unsolved, as does the February fatal attack on two girls, ages 13 and 14, who were hiking on a trail near Delphi.

Ives says he would rescind his resignation if enough evidence emerged to file charges in either case.
