Tip in double-slaying case leads to arrest for 2007 homicide

Delphi murders

Law enforcement officials speak in March at Delphi United Methodist Church in Delphi, Indiana, about an investigation into the murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams on Feb. 22.. 

LOGANSPORT, Ind. — Authorities say a tip in the investigation into the slayings of two northern Indiana girls led to an arrest in a decade-old homicide case.

The Cass County prosecutor's office filed a murder charge Thursday against 39-year-old Kevin Sellers of Logansport in the 2007 shooting death of his uncle, 50-year-old David Sellers. No charges were brought at the time.

Prosecutors say he was questioned Wednesday about the girls' killings and, when told about evidence in David Sellers' death, said: "I surrender" and discussed his uncle's death.

Court records didn't list a defense lawyer.

Authorities are still investigating the killings of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams. They vanished Feb. 13 while hiking near their hometown of Delphi.

Their bodies were found the next day. Sellers isn't charged in that case.
