Authorities say Chanda Hatt, her husband and two children arrived home Friday evening when Worley allegedly opened fire with an AR-15 assault weapon.

Hatt’s husband said he told their children to run to a neighbor’s house after hearing his wife scream.

Police say Worley told them he hid out near a fence and waited for the family.

He was in custody Saturday at Vanderburgh County Jail with no bond on charges including murder and attempted murder with a firearm. It was immediately unclear if he has an attorney.
