Attorney: Recordings may have captured Monticello slayings

MONTICELLO (AP) — An attorney for a northern Indiana man accused of fatally stabbing his mother and half-sister says video and audio recordings may have captured the February slayings at the family's home.

Court-appointed attorney Patrick Manahan mentioned the recordings during Monday's pre-trial hearing for 20-year-old David Rodenbarger. The Journal & Courier reports Manahan declined to elaborate or say where the recordings may have come from.

Rodenbarger faces two counts of murder for allegedly stabbing his mother, 41-year-old Michelle J. Haskins, and his 6-year-old half-sister, Jillian E. Haskins, with a two-pronged meat fork and knife inside their Monticello home.

He's being treated at a state-run psychiatric facility in Logansport. A judge ruled in March that Rodenbarger is incompetent to stand trial for now.
