Indianapolis—UPDATE: 33-year-old Ronald Davis pleaded guilty to the murders of two mothers and their children January 14th 2008 on Hovey Street. Friday morning, a judge scheduled a sentencing date of October 14th.
On the night of January 14th 2008 four men went to a home at 3283 Hovey Street on the city's east side expecting to steal dope and money. What they found instead were two frightened women and their children.
Gina and Jordan Hunt and Andrea Yarrell and Charlii, just four months old. As the women cowered and protected their children and begged for their lives one of the robbers opened fire. That was Ronald Davis.
When it was over four people were murdered and Sheriff Frank Anderson announced the killers would be hunted down like dogs. Within days the killers and their co-conspirators were in jail. Davis, as the triggerman, faced the death penalty.
Two years, eight months and two days after the bloodbath on Hovey Street justice will be served as Ronald Davis has agreed to stand up in court Friday morning and admit what he did and be sent away to prison forever.
"It was brought to my attention he would plead guilty and receive a sentence over 200 years in prison," explained Gina Hunt's father, Jerry Hunt. "I was also advised that he would not be eligible for parole. Basically he would die in prison. I feel like he should marinate in the cesspool he came from."
"I can't find the words," continued Hunt. "I have actions I would like to show him, but under the circumstances I'm quite sure I have a lot of comrades who are incarcerated now that feel that this guy is a child murderer. He shouldn't even walk the yard of anybody's prison system."
Davis will plead guilty in criminal court six at 10:30 am Friday morning. He will receive 289 years in prison.
Jerry Hunt said that he will stand up in court and address the man who killed his daughter and grandson.
