Indianapolis Police have arrested a teenager in connection to the rape and killing of Amanda Blackburn, the pregnant young wife of a local pastor.

On Monday morning, cops announced they had arrested 18-year-old Larry Taylor on a preliminary charge of murder for the gruesome Nov. 10 crime. Two other men remain in custody on parole violations and are also considered suspects, according to local TV station Fox 59.

“We are thankful to our federal, state and local partnerships that aided in the apprehension of the suspect in this terrible and senseless crime,” Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department chief Rick Hite said in a press release.

The case’s graphic details and general mystery had combined to generate national attention.
