Share this post

A 20-year-old Indianapolis man has been charged in the deaths of a former northwest Indiana woman and her daughter. Police say 52-year-old Marylyn Erb, who grew up in Lowell, and 23-year-old Kelley Erb were found dead last Friday inside their home in Westfield, a community just north of Indianapolis. Authorities say 20-year-old Christian Rene Haley has been charged with two counts of murder, two counts of felony murder, robbery, burglary and theft. Police say they have determined that the victim's home was not randomly chosen by the suspect, but authorities did not release any other details. Police thanked the public for providing numerous tips and information. The investigation has been a multiagency effort that also included officers from Hamilton County, Noblesville, Indiana State Police, Indianapolis, Lawrence, and US Marshals. The Westfield Police Department says the home invasion robbery occurred during the midday hours of Friday, December 20, and that both victims died as a result of blunt force trauma, police say.
