CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) – Clarksville police have arrested two teenagers in connection with the murder of a Sellersburg man found dead inside his home earlier this month. Both teens are former Silver Creek High School students.
Police said Christopher Jared Sowders, 18, and Garreth Edward Stephens, 19, knew the victim's stepson. Investigators believe the teens went to his home to commit a burglary and were startled by the victim.
Steven Baldwin, 47, was found shot to death on his dining room floor in the 2300 block of Plum Woods Drive on March 11. Police previously said Baldwin was killed sometime between 9:45 a.m. and noon that day.
Sowders turned 18 two days after Baldwin was killed in his own home. Both teens are facing murder and burglary charges. They are due in court for an initial hearing Friday, March 22 at 9 a.m.
