Fort Wayne man convicted of killing 2 women, fetus

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A jury needed less than two hours to convict a Fort Wayne man of three counts of murder in the fatal shootings of two women and the death of one’s unborn fetus.

Twenty-seven-year-old Deyante Stephens also was found guilty of a firearms enhancement Thursday evening following a three-day trial. He’s due to be sentenced April 5 and faces up to 215 years in prison.

Stephens was charged in the January 2018 slayings of 37-year-old Preonda Jones and 24-year-old Brianna Gould inside a home. Gould was pregnant.

Prosecutors said it was a senseless act of violence. Defense attorney Anthony Churchward argued no one saw Stephens shoot the women.
