Orlando Mitchell is charged with the murder of 32-year-old Krystal Walton at the Charity Child Care near the west of Indianapolis. Mitchell was pushed into court in a wheelchair. He is now recovering in jail after he was shot by police and arrested just a few hours after Walton was shot and killed the morning of Sept. 16.
Orlando Mitchell is 33 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Authorities in Indianapolis have charged a 33-year-old man with murdering his infant son’s mother moments after she dropped her children off at daycare.
People confirm through online records that Orlando Mitchell was formally charged Monday with murder, invasion of privacy and unlawful possession of a firearm by a domestic batterer.
Mitchell is accused of fatally shooting 32-year-old Krystal Walton outside Charity Child Care in Indianapolis on Sept. 16.
Citing the affidavit, WTHR reports that staffers witnessed the shooting at the daycare and children.
According to the station, the killing happened around 7:30 a.m., as Walton was headed back to her car.
WTHR reports the couple to have a 1-year-old boy together.
Court records confirm Mitchell is being held without bond.
In the affidavit, authorities allege that body camera footage of Mitchell’s arrests shows him saying, “I shot that b—h!” and “I shot that b—h in the face!”
The suspect’s mother drove to the daycare after learning of the shooting, WTHR reports, citing the affidavit.
There, she told police she had not spoken to Mitchell in over a month after he’d threatened to kill Walton and himself in a murder-suicide.
She allegedly told police her son had said, “If he couldn’t see his son, she wasn’t gonna be in his life either,” the outlet reports.
Mitchell’s mother provided police with a description of his vehicle, which was found around 10:20 a.m.
Mitchell was arrested after a brief standoff with police, which ended with officers shooting him.
The suspect was rushed to the hospital for treatment.
No pleas have been entered in this case, and it was unclear Tuesday if Mitchell had an attorney.
