Prosecutor: Killings were murder-for-hire plot

INDIANAPOLIS - New charges have been filed against two men in connection with four murders from last year.

The Marion County prosecutor's office announced that Richard Grundy III is being charged with four counts of murder and conspiracy to commit murder, believing he paid another man, John Means, to commit them.

Previously, investigators charged Means with the murders, but have now also charged him with conspiracy to commit murder, believing he worked with Grundy.

“Investigators have continued to pursue information in these murders under the suspicion that more individuals were involved,” Marion County prosecutor Terry Curry said. “Today we are alleging that the four shooting deaths were murder-for-hire plots conspired by Richard Grundy III and John Means.”

Police say Means shot and killed Tyrece Dorsey and William Davis on Jan. 28, 2014, and killed Carlos Jefferson and Julius Douglas on Feb. 1, 2014.

Prosecutors say Means was paid $12,000 to kill two of the people.
