ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) — An Allen County judge sentenced a man convicted of the January 2018 murders of two women and an unborn child to 200 years in prison Friday.

A jury found Deyante Stephens guilty in February of three counts of murder.

Preonda Jones, Brianna Gould and her unborn son were shot to death inside a home in the 1200 block of Lillie Street.

Police took Stephens into custody within hours after the shooting after he was caught trying to break into an apartment.
