EPD: Estranged Husband Charged in Double Homicide
Police say the deaths of a former husband and wife were apparently the result of domestic violence.
The bodies of Santanna Douglas and Donte Meriwether were found in a home at 1900 Plantation Court Monday night.
They were both 43 years old.
Evansville Police said the previously married couple had been deceased for several days.
Police arrested a suspect, 46-year-old Ernest Douglas.
The EPD said he was married to Santanna Douglas at the time of her death but had been barred from the Plantation Court home in June, following a reported fight between him and Meriwether.
In July, police responded to a trespassing call alleging Ernest Douglas was at the home.
EPD spokesman Jason Cullum says there are NO additional suspects in the double homicide.
