An autopsy reveals that a weekend murder victim died from blood loss after he was stabbed in the neck.

Forty-two-year-old Keith Vaughn was found dead in his Kathleen Avenue home Sunday.

Three people have been arrested in connection with Vaughn's death. 21-year-old Megan Mecum was arrested early Monday morning on Murder and Robbery charges; 31-year-old Hubert Mayhugh II and 17-year-old James Mayhugh were also arrested Monday, after Evansville police put the public on notice that the pair were wanted for Vaughn's death.

Court documents show that Mecum was arrested on Friday, March 9 on a drug charge and for violating a protective order that was granted to Vaughn.

In the request for the order, which was granted out on February 22, Vaughn wrote that on February 14 Mecum called him threatening to kill him, broke a screen door to his home and damaged his car.

According to court records, Mecum and Vaughn were married on January 10th of this year. However, Vaughn filed for divorce and the protective order against Mecum just over a month later.
