INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 26, 2016) — A local bounty hunter accused of killing two teens is set to appear in court again Friday morning following new developments in the case. Just this week, police say they found the body of one of the victims.

Kevin Watkins, 49, is charged with killing two teens on Christmas eve and hiding their bodies. At the time, their bodies hadn’t even been discovered yet. However, prosecutors said there was enough blood and tissue evidence at Watkins' home, in his car and at his bail bonds office to charge him with two counts of murder.

On Monday, police found a body in a pond on the city's east side. By Wednesday, the Marion County Prosecutors Office confirmed — the body had been identified as 15-year-old Timmie Jackson using fingerprint comparison.

The other teenager, Dionne Williams, still has not been found.

Watkins is set to be in court at 9 a.m. on Monday.
