Murder suspect arrested in Kentucky back in Indiana

MARION, Ind. (AP) - A suspect in a triple slaying in Kokomo has
been returned to Indiana from southeastern Kentucky.
Jeremy Blanchard was arrested Friday night in London, Ky., and
was brought back to Indiana on Tuesday night. He appeared Wednesday
morning in Grant County Circuit Court on probation violation
charges.
The 30-year-old Blanchard also faces intimidation charges in his
hometown of Gas City. But authorities haven't determined whether to
charge him in the deaths of 62-year-old David McPike, 57-year-old
Rebecca Berg and her 28-year-old daughter, Jessica Berg.
Police say Rebecca Berg and her daughter were in Kokomo to
attend a funeral when they were killed at McPike's home. Their
bodies were found Friday morning, the same day a judge signed a
personal protection order Jessica Berg had sought against her
ex-boyfriend Blanchard.
