IN- Griffith man charged in brutal killing of sisters

9-18-2009 Indiana:

Affidavit: Suspect admitted to raping one, stabbing, choking both

CROWN POINT | Lake County prosecutors on Wednesday filed multiple felony counts against 35-year-old David Flores in connection to last week's slaying of Jennifer Evans, of Griffith, and her sister, Kristen Kennedy, of Chicago.

The sisters were found dead by their father Friday night in the bathroom of Evans' smoke-filled home on Lindberg Avenue.

Flores, of Griffith, was charged with two counts of murder, murder in the perpetration of rape, two counts of murder in the perpetration of arson, rape and arson. He faces a maximum sentence of 130 years in prison if convicted, the prosecutor's office said.

He is being held without bond in the Lake County Jail.

A probable cause affidavit states Flores, on parole after serving time on a previous rape charge, told police he had attended a small gathering Sept. 10 in the garage of Evans' home.

Police said Flores admitted to drinking and falling asleep on the couch, later waking up and making sexual attempts against Kennedy, 25. When rejected, Flores raped Kennedy before stabbing her multiple times, according to statements he made to police.

After choking 28-year-old Jennifer Evans until she was unconscious, Flores moved both bodies to the bathroom, covering them with bed linens he ignited after disabling smoke detectors, according to the affidavit.

Autopsy results showed smoke was present in the victims' lungs, according to the affidavit.

Flores told police he obtained two knives from the 'kitchen, stabbed the victims repeatedly and choked both to ensure they were dead. He put the knives and other items he touched into plastic bags that he disposed of in an alley before leaving the home sometime Friday afternoon.

Detectives wanting to question Flores went to his mother's East Chicago apartment. Police said Flores attempted to flee before being apprehended in a stairwell. ..Source.. by Susan Brown
