February 22, 2010

A 63-year-old Indianapolis man is behind bars, accused of killing his girlfriend and another woman. Elwini Hart surrendered to police Saturday night. Police found the bodies of Linda Nickle, 61, and Elizabeth Newcomer, 24, shot to death in Hart’s residence in the 6800 block of Westdrum Drive on the west side. Nickle’s son told police that his mother and Hart had argued about Hart moving out of the home. Hart was moving out so that Nickle’s son and fiancé, Newcomer, could move in. Police say they found marijuana and a gun in Hart’s car.
