20-year-old Christian Haley broke into home of former boss, Todd Erb. He then took Erb’s wife and 23-year-old daughter to basement and crushed their skulls with a concrete block. Haley then stole white pearl earrings, an iPhone 5, a gold-colored chain and two Chase bank cards.
INDIANA – […] Christian Rene Haley [PICTURED LEFT] was identified on Thursday as the suspect in the gruesome murder of Marylyn Erb, 52, and Kelley Erb, 23, on Friday December 20 at their house in Westfield.
The two women were found dead in the basement near a pool of blood, according to a probable cause affidavit, with the time of death said to be between noon and 1pm, reported MyDesert.com.
Haley had worked for Todd Erb at the family business Sundown Gardens, a nursery and gardening facility, for about three months.
However he had been fired in June for ‘attendance problems’.
The court documents claim Haley bragged to a friend that he ‘bashed (the victims’) heads in with some cement or something’ and that he was angry for getting fired.
[…] Police received an anonymous Crimestoppers call from a person saying the friend was upset about Haley killing the two women.
Police used CCTV footage from the stores to track down the individual, who confessed Haley had told him about the murders.
Haley was then arrested.
Haley had been to the Erb home before, the affidavit said, and several months ago had talked about robbing the Erbs with a gun. (full article)
