Two people have been charged with murder in the 2017 death of an Allen County man.
Melissa Scott and Donovan Sutton, both of Scottsville, were taken into custody Friday, November 8, by the Allen County Sheriff’s Office.
Larry Whitney Jr. died on May 16, 2017 after being found with a chest wound.
At the time, police were looking for his two daughters after they were thought to be with their mother Melissa Scott.
Both children were later found at a home in Smiths Grove. Scott was initially charged with custodial interference.
Scott and Sutton were both charged with murder-conspiracy and taken to the Allen County Detention Center.
The investigation is ongoing.
