Arrests made in the case of a pregnant bank teller shot

400 Indianapolis police officers worked to crack the case of a pregnant bank teller who was shot and lost her twins.  Now, police have made two arrests, nearly two months after the shooting.

Last week, Indianapolis police received new tips in the case.  It led to them bringing in a suspect, who implicated another man.

Indianapolis police say these two men were involved in shooting 30-year-old Katherin Shuffield in the stomach at the Huntington Bank branch in Indianapolis on April 22nd.  Two days after that shooting, Shuffield ended up losing her twin girls.

"You've got two innocent babies lives terminated at five months old.  And all we can do is charge these men with individual feticide because of how the laws are written," sad Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi.

Detectives arrested 29-year-old Brian Kendrick on those charges.

28-year-old Aaron Stewart is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and police say he's the one who pointed the blame at Kendrick.

In cases where a fetus dies, current Indiana law only allows prosecutors to charge people with murder if the mother is at least seven months pregnant.  Again Shuffield was just five months pregnant.

If convicted of attempted murder, Kendrick could face 20 to 50 years in prison.  And, two to eight years for each charge of killing a fetus.

The formal charges are expected to be filed on Monday with the two being arraigned later in the week.
