FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – A Fort Wayne death penalty case has been rescheduled to April of 2019, according to the News-Sentinel.

Marcus Dansby is charged with four counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, after the Sept. 11, 2016 attack that killed Consuela Arrington, 37; Traeven Harris, 18; and Dajahiona Arrington, 18, who was eight and a half months pregnant with a boy.
