INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Three men accused of raping, robbing and shooting residents of a north side home now face 35 criminal charges in the case.
Trae Spells, Alexander Dupree and Michael Pugh were charged on Tuesday with:
- 12 counts of criminal deviate conduct.
- Four counts of rape.
- Three counts of robbery.
- Three counts of carjacking.
- Three counts of criminal confinement.
- Three counts of battery.
- Two counts of attempted criminal deviate conduct.
- Two counts of intimidation.
- One count of aggravated battery.
- One count of battery by bodily waste.
- One count of burglary.
Court documents released Monday detail a gruesome series of events at the home on 79th Street, including multiple rapes and the mother being shot twice.
Police say six men entered the family's home early in the morning. They say some of the suspects drove the mother to an ATM to get money and while in the car she was sexually assaulted.
Spells, Dupree and Pugh will be arraigned on the new charged on Tuesday. It took a judge 17 minutes to read all 35 charges against the three suspects.
During the hearing, the suspects showed a varied of expressions. Spells looked as if he were in a daze as police read the charges. Dupree read over the probable cause as the hearing preceded. Pugh showed a lot of emotion. Pugh kept shaking his head back and forth as the charges were read. At one point, a deputy held the back of Pugh's shirt to keep Pugh's head up as the judge addressed him.
Family members for the suspects rushed out the courtroom with their faces covered, and refused to take any questions from the media.
When prosecutors left the courtroom, they took a number of questions. At one point prosecutors stated they were turning their attention to victims in this case.
"We were thinking about the family this happened to, they are the people that really matter," said Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Eric Schmaeke.
A community meeting was planned for the neighborhood where the home invasion took place.
