IMPD Homicide Detectives were granted an arrest warrant for 16-year-old Dejuan Taylor for Robbery and the Murder of 16-year-old Elijah Taylor.
Dejuan Taylor was apprehended this morning without incident and taken to the Marion County Jail.
Dejuan Taylor has been charged as an adult. A copy of the probable cause affidavit can be obtained from the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. The fact that the arrestee and the decedent share the same last name is coincidental, they are not related.
A charge of a crime is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
