Grand jury indicts man accused of stabbing family


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A man accused in the stabbing deaths of 3 members of a Nashville family has been indicted by a Davidson County grand jury on murder charges.

Lorenzo Kelvin Jenkins was named in a seven-count indictment charging him with three counts of first-degree premeditated murder, three counts of felony murder and especially aggravated robbery.

Jenkins is accused of stabbing 26-year-old Wendy Sullivan; her father, 56-year-old Patrick Sullivan; and her mother, 48-year-old Deborah Sullivan.

Police have said the Sullivans were selling prescription drugs and marijuana in their home. They were all found dead inside the home in October.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is said to have used DNA to link the 39-year-old suspect to the scene.
