MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee man was indicted in the stabbing deaths of his former girlfriend and their 5-month-old son, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Thursday.

Enoch Zarceno Turner, 25, of Shelby County, was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated arson and especially aggravated burglary, Weirich’s office said in a news release.

Heather Cook, 32, and her baby, Bentley, were found in an upstairs bedroom of their burning house Sept. 13 when sheriff’s deputies were called to the residence. They had suffered multiple stab wounds. A fire in the bedroom appeared to have been intentionally set, according to the fire marshal.
