INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The case is moving forward against the man accused of killing three people after he said he was inspired by the movie “The Purge.”

Johnathan Cruz is scheduled to have his first pre-trial conference Friday morning at 8:45 a.m.

Court documents said Cruz said the murders were a “purge” which referenced a movie from 2013.

Just this week, Marion County prosecutors said they plan to seek the death penalty against Cruz, alleging his killings were all “for sport.”
