FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP): Prosecutors have filed a fourth murder charge against a man accused of killing three people in a Fort Wayne home.

Prosecutors filed the charge Wednesday against 20-year-old Marcus Dansby of Fort Wayne in the death of the unborn child of 18-year-old Dajahiona Arriongton. She was 8 1/2 months pregnant, and coroners ruled the death of her unborn son a homicide.

The bodies of Arriongton, 18-year-old Traeven Harris and 37-year-old Consuela Arriongton were discovered inside the south side home early Sunday. The victims had been shot and stabbed. Dansby also is charged with attempted murder against 14-year-old Trinity Hairston.

A witness told police Dansby and Dajahiona Arrington had dated but broke up when he learned he wasn’t the father of her child.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Dansby.
