Easter killings indictment

A Shady Cove man will face aggravated murder charges for the Easter morning shooting deaths of a mother and her daughter.

A Jackson County grand jury indicted Kit Warren Wilkins, 59, on Thursday on two counts of aggravated murder and two counts of murder on allegations he shot his longtime girlfriend, Shirley Kay Gann, 62, and Gann’s daughter Judy Mae Gann, 43, according to a news release from the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office.

Under Oregon law, grounds for aggravated murder include more than one murder victim in the same criminal episode.

An autopsy report released Wednesday by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said both women had “suffered multiple gunshot wounds.”
