Second man charged in Detroit triple shotgun slaying

DETROIT (AP MODIFIED) - A second man has been charged in the shotgun slayings of two women and a man in the presence of two young children inside an abandoned Detroit house.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says that 25-year-old Kevin Lewis faces three counts of first-degree premeditated murder. His arraignment is scheduled today in 36th District Court.

Twenty-one-year-old Shadell Love was charged last week and is jailed while awaiting a March 19 hearing.

Authorities say 25-year-old Lauren Trotty and 20-year-olds India Coleman and Curtis Clemens were slain Thursday at the house used by squatters.

A 5-year-old girl was found inside the next day and told neighbors she saw a man kill her mother and the others. A 1-year-old child also remained in the house with the bodies overnight.
