INDIANAPOLIS — Jurors have begun deliberations in the trial of 34-year-old Maurice Turentine, a man charged in a pair of murders at a home on the city's southeast side.

At the time time of the killings in 2017, police said the murders were drug-related.

The victims were 30-year-old Darrel Miller and 31-year-old James Clark.

Both were found shot to death inside a home on Villa Avenue.

A four-year-old child was present at the time of the murders but was not harmed.

A second suspect, Mingo Thames, was convicted by a Marion County jury late last year and was sentenced to 110-years in prison.
