Prison inmate charged in 2 Indy double homicides

INDIANAPOLIS - Police say they've served an Indiana prison inmate with four murder warrants stemming from two double homicides in Indianapolis earlier this year.

John Means was served with four separate warrants for murder in connection to the double homicides that happened earlier in 2014, officials with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said Friday.

Police believe Means is the suspect in the double homicide that happened Jan. 28. in the 1800 block of North Rural Street and on Feb. 1 in the 3400 block of North Hovey Street.

The victims of the Rural Street homicide were identified as Tyrece Dorsey and William Davis. The victims of the Hovey Street homicide were identified as Carlos Jefferson and Julius Douglas.

Means was already in custody at the Miami Correctional Facility on a March conviction for robbery, conspiracy, theft, drug possession and other charges.

Means will remain at the Miami Correctional Facility until his initial hearing, which is scheduled for Sept. 26 in Marion County.

Prison records show Means also had 2010 convictions for murder and conspiracy and was released on March 28, 2013.
