FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Prosecutors are seeking life without parole for a man charged in the killing of a woman and her three children.
Twenty-one-year-old Cohen Bennett Hancz-Barron of Fort Wayne appeared Friday in Allen Superior Court as prosecutors requested the life sentence. He faces four counts of murder.
The bodies of 26-year-old Sarah Nicole Zent; her sons, 5-year-old Carter and 3-year-old Ashton; and 2-year-old daughter Aubree were found June 2 in a Fort Wayne home.
The coroner has said all four died of stab wounds, and the mother also was strangled.
Hancz-Barron was arrested hours later at an apartment complex in Lafayette.
