INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A Marion County man connected to one of the suspects in last year's south side explosion is headed back to jail.
David Gill was arrested inside a Marion County courtroom Thursday morning on a felony warrant out of Kenton County, Ky.
Police there say he swindled a woman out of money.
"The court was advised of a warrant out of Kentucky, and Mr. Gill was taken into custody on that warrant," said Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Denise Robinson. "It's called theft by deception, and it is a felony warrant out of Kentucky."
I-Team 8 spoke with other women last year in Marion County who accused Gill and explosion suspect Mark Leonard of pulling similar scams on them.
Several of those women filed civil charges against the two.
Gill and Leonard also face a conspiracy to commit insurance fraud charge in Marion County, unrelated to the explosion. Prosecutors say the two filed a false insurance claim, saying a motorcycle they owned had been stolen, when they had instead disassembled it.
Gill appeared before Judge Sheila Carlisle for a hearing on that charge Thursday, where he was arrested on the outstanding warrant. Carlisle agreed to put the conspiracy case on hold for 60 days.
"We agreed to continue it so he could be taken into custody to face whatever charge he's got in Kentucky," Robinson said.
Gill's name was again brought up in connection to the Richmond Hill explosion on Wednesday in search warrants that were just unsealed by the court. Gill has not been charged in connection with the explosion. Robinson said she could not comment on whether Gill had any connection to that case.
He's scheduled to appear in court for an extradition hearing Friday morning. His attorney agreed to waive extradition rights on Thursday.
I-Team 8 spoke with the woman accusing Gill of scamming her out money in Kentucky. Hear from her tonight on 24-Hour News 8 at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
