INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A Marion County man connected to one of the suspects in last year's south side explosion is headed back to jail.
David Gill was arrested inside a Marion County courtroom Thursday morning on a felony warrant out of Kenton County, Ky.
He's accused of swindling a woman out of money.
"The court was advised of a warrant out of Kentucky, and Mr. Gill was taken into custody on that warrant," said Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Denise Robinson. "It's called theft by deception, and it is a felony warrant out of Kentucky."
Michelle Litzler is the one who pressed for the charges to be filed.
"I met him on an internet dating service and totally fell in love with him," she told I-Team 8's Troy Kehoe. "He gave me the charm and said I need to borrow some money until my insurance check comes in."
Litzler says she agreed to lend Gill the money. She claims he's never paid her back.
"I'm still waiting. I have a notarized paper saying he was going to start paying me back in February, and that has not happened. It's a lot of money. We're talking thousands of dollars," she said.
Gill's profile on the dating site has since disappeared.
Litzler said she thought Gill had disappeared too, until Thursday morning. That's when Gill appeared before Judge Sheila Carlisle to face a conspiracy to commit insurance fraud charge in Marion County. It's unrelated to the explosion.
But, Gill's co-defendant—Mark Leonard-- is at the center of the blast investigation. Prosecutors say the two filed a false insurance claim, saying a motorcycle they owned had been stolen, when they had instead disassembled it.
I-Team 8 spoke with other women last yea r in Marion County who accused Gill and explosion suspect Mark Leonard of pulling similar scams on them.
Several of those women filed civil charges against the two. One of the civil cases was dismissed in March after both sides failed to show to court. Two others are still listed as pending.
Gill has not been charged in connection with the Richmond Hill explosion, but his name resurfaced on Wednesday in search warrants that were just unsealed by Judge Carlisle. An additional seven search warrants in the case were unsealed on Thursday.
In one warrant, Leonard's brother Joshua Leonard claims Mark Leonard is "addicted to money" and that he, Gill and Leonard's half brother Bob Leonard, Jr. have "been conducting frauds together since 1995."
According to the warrants, "one fraud repeated several times is of an insurance company in which the insurance pays for an airbag to be replaced, but it was not actually replaced after deployment in a crash."
Joshua Leonard also described to investigators how he claimed Gill had "swindled an old man out of his black Dodge Ram truck to pay a gambling debt."
Another witness in the warrants claims Gill "may have been the man in the white van" seen outside Shirley's home the day of the explosion. Cell phone records contained in the warrants also show Gill and Leonard exchanging phone calls and text messages on the day of the explosion.
Robinson said she could not comment on whether Gill had any connection to the explosion case.
Litzler says--link or not--she just wants Gill to pay.
"It's embarrassing to come to court and say--yeah, this guy did this [to me]," she said. "But, I want to be the last victim. That is my goal: to be the last victim he does this to."
Gill is scheduled to appear in court for an extradition hearing at 9 a.m. Monday in Marion County Criminal Court 9. His attorney agreed to waive extradition rights on Thursday.
