INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A man facing the death penalty in a quadruple homicide is now expected to attend a change of plea hearing, court records show.

Kenneth Rackemann is accused in the Feb. 20 2014 robbery conspiracy and homicides on South Parker Ave.

Walter Burnell, Jacob Rodemich, Kristy Sanchez, and Hayley Navarra were all shot to death that day.

Four people have been charged in the case, including Rackemann, Anthony LaRussa, Valencia Williams and Samantha Bradley. Police arrested them shortly after the murders, saying that they found evidence all over the city and received tops from citizens.

Prosecutor Terry Curry announced he would seek the death penalty because of the multiple victims and that the crimes happened while Rackemann was on parole.

Rackemann was charged with four counts of murder, four counts of felony murder, robbery, a Class A felony, and conspiracy to commit robbery, a Class A felony. Now, a change of plea hearing is scheduled for Dec. 18, according to court records.

It wasn’t clear if the change of plea is part of a plea agreement.
