Meet 39 year old Chris Rondeau, Hoosier.
Mr. Rondeau is in custody for the murder of 69 year old Adolph Stegbauer.
Rondeau and Stegbauer argued, and one of them reached for a sword. The other also armed himself, and the two engaged in a swordfight. During the swordfight Rondeau's grandmother Franziska Stegbauer was fatally wounded, although police don't know who inflicted the fatal wound. Rondeau stabbed, hacked or slashed Adolph, who lingered for a few days before dying.
We learn from this story that one of the swords was described as a "World War Two Japanese officer's sword"
Things in Indiana are more complicated than you might have thought.
