Prison inmate faces murder charges in 2 Indianapolis double homicides this year


INDIANAPOLIS — Police say they've served an Indiana prison inmate with four murder warrants stemming from two double homicides in Indianapolis earlier this year.

They served the warrants Friday on John Means, who's incarcerated at the Miami Correction Facility in northern Indiana on a March conviction for robbery, conspiracy, theft, drug possession and other charges.

Means, who turns 24 on Monday, is now charged in connection with the Jan. 28 slayings of Tyrece Dorsey and William Davis and the slayings four days later of Carlos Jefferson and Julius Douglas.

Means faces an initial hearing on the murder charges on Sept. 26. It wasn't clear whether he has an attorney.

Prison records show Means also had 2010 convictions for murder and conspiracy and was released on March 28, 2013.
