The suspect in a Bartholomew County quadruple homicide is appearing in court Monday on an unrelated assault charge.
Samuel Sallee is the only suspect in the killing of four people in Waynesville in May. He’s being held in the Brown County jail on assault charges equating to a class D felony. He has not been arrested or charged for the murders.
Sallee originally pled ‘not guilty’ to the assault, but his lawyer, Andrew Szakaly, has since filed a motion that would allow him to enter a plea deal before the trial.
Sallee could face up to the three years in jail if convicted of the felony charges.
Federal officials have also indicted Salle on illegal possession of a firearm. The indictment alleges federal and local authorities found Sallee in possession of the rifle on May 14—three days after the quadruple homicide. If convicted of illegal possession, Sallee faces up to ten years in federal prison.
