New charges for Indiana man suspected of killing 3Official: Indiana man to be charged in death of 3rd woman, whose body was found buried in yard
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ' A court official says prosecutors are planning to charge a southern Indiana man with murdering a third woman, whose body was found buried in his backyard last month.
The Floyd Superior Court official says Judge Susan Orth found probable cause during a Wednesday hearing to justify charging 54-year-old Clyde Gibson with murdering 35-year-old Stephanie Kirk. The official declined to give her name, citing court policy, but said she was at the hearing.
Gibson is due in court later Wednesday. He is already charged with murder in the April slaying of 75-year-old Christine Whitis and the 2002 slaying of Karen Hodella, who was visiting from Florida.
Gibson was arrested on drunken driving charges last month while driving Whitis's car. Authorities found Whitlow's body in his home and found Kirk's buried outside.
