Individuals involved in a quadruple killing were given almost 200 years in prison



Indianapolis, Indiana – Two men were sentenced for their roles in a quadruple homicide that occurred in 2020, the Marion county prosecutor revealed on Friday.

The Indiana Department of Prison received a 220-year sentence for Cameron and Desmond Banks. Lasean Watkins, a third shooter, was given new legal representation, and his hearing was rescheduled until April 28.

On the 4100 block of Shady Oak Road in February 2020, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to complaints of gunfire.

Braxton Ford, Kimari Hunt, Jalen Roberts, and Marcel Wills’ remains were found by police. All four of the victims had sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Investigators said that the flat was plundered and that a safe had been unlocked and emptied.

Soon after the incident, the three guys can be seen on surveillance film entering and exiting the home. From the tape, police were able to recognize the suspects, including the getaway driver.

For the killings of Braxton Ford, Kimari Hunt, Jalen Roberts, and Marcel Wills in February 2020, the three men were found guilty on four counts each of murder, felony murder, and robbery resulting in serious bodily damage.

Rodriece Anderson, a fourth suspect, entered a guilty plea to robbery charges resulting in serious bodily harm. The sentencing hearing for Anderson was set for April 3 at 1 pm.

Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mears said in a statement, “This case serves as a tragic reminder of the lasting effects of gun violence. The Prosecutor’s Office will continue to pursue justice for families like Braxton’s, Kimari’s, Jalen’s, and Marcel’s that have experienced such senseless loss. As a community, it is on us to continue supporting these families and keep the memories of their loved ones alive.”
