INDIANAPOLIS (March 4, 2016) – Three men charged in connection with the death of a pastor’s pregnant wife and a series of other crimes are due in court Friday.

Larry Taylor Jr., Jalen Watson and Diano Gordon are set to appear in court Friday afternoon.

Taylor and Watson are charged with murder in the death of Amanda Blackburn on Nov. 10, 2015. Blackburn was shot during a home invasion robbery and later died from her injuries.

In addition, they’re accused of raping and robbing a woman at a west side apartment a week before Blackburn’s murder. Prosecutors also charged Taylor in the shooting death of a man on Nov 4.

Gordon was accused of carrying out burglaries with Taylor and Watson on the day Blackburn was shot. He was charged with burglary and theft in December. In January, Gordon was also charged with murder.
