Two men charged with murder of pastor's wife

Two men were charged Monday with murder in the fatal shooting of a pastor's pregnant wife during an apparent break in of their Indianapolis home.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry identified the two men charged with the murder of 28 year old Amanda Blackburn, as Larry Jo Taylor Jr., 18, and Jalen E. Watson, 21, both of Indianapolis. Both men face murder, burglary, theft and several other charges.

Prosecutors believe Taylor shot Blackburn three times, including once in the back of the head.

Amanda's husband, Davey Blackburn, released a statement Monday saying: "Though it does not undo the pain we are feeling, I was extremely relieved to get the news of the arrest made last night of Amanda's killer."
