IN - Seven family members shot dead in Indianapolis home, 1 June 2006
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The slayings of seven family members unfolded when one victim returned home and drew a weapon as two gunmen were ransacking the house to find a safe they believed contained cash and cocaine, according to documents filed by prosecutors Monday.
One man arrested in last week's killings - James Stewart, 30 - was searching for the safe upstairs but found nothing and went downstairs, according to a probable cause affidavit, the first detailed account of the incident. There he found that Magno Albarran, 29, had entered the house and pulled a gun on Desmond Turner, 28, whom authorities consider the main triggerman.
Stewart told investigators he fired his handgun at Albarran. Turner then "started shooting everybody," Stewart said.
As Turner continued the rampage, Stewart said he pleaded with him "not to 'go back there' and not to shoot the kids," referring to the bedrooms where the bodies of three children were found, according to the affidavit filed in Marion County Criminal Court.
Three generations of family members were found dead after the shootings Thursday night. Police arrested Stewart without incident after a traffic stop Friday. Turner surrendered Saturday.
The court documents say Turner told a group of juveniles just before the attack that "he needed money and was going to hit a lick" - street terminology for a robbery.

What makes some people think they don't have to work for a living and can just acquire whatever they want in whatever fashion they want? Hope this creep is locked up forever, both of them in fact.

From January 2010:
James Stewart, the second man convicted of murdering seven members of the same family in 2006, was sentenced to 425 years in prison Wednesday afternoon.
Last month, a jury found Stewart, 33, guilty in the June 1, 2006, massacre at 560 N. Hamilton Ave. that left Emma Valdez, 46, David Covarrubias, 8, Alberto Covarrubias, 11, Magno Albarran, 29, Flora Albarran, 21, Alberto Covarrubias, 56, and Luis Albarran, 5, dead...
Desmond Turner was sentenced in November to life without parole plus 88 years for his role as triggerman in the slayings.
