NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - The deaths of a New Albany mother and her two children has been unusual from the start. Police concluded she drowned the children and then somehow drowned herself in March.
A Floyd County grand jury started investigating this week, despite police saying in May that they knew how Jaime, 35, Brandon, 10, and Katelyn Clutter, 6 months, died. It indicates that there's a rift growing between police and prosecutors in New Albany.
Friday, a subpoena arrived at WAVE 3 asking to hear what police told us they'd concluded in a May 17 news conference. The prosecutor's office and New Albany police department are just a few hundred yards away from each other.
"It's a truly unusual situation where you're going to have the prosecutors to convene a grand jury, bring in citizens, place them under oath and ask them statements that have already been given by the police department," said defense attorney Pat Renn, who's not involved in this case.
Floyd County Prosecutor KeithHenderson said the grand jury is not targeting any living person. He couldn't say more because the work of the grand jury is secret, but said it probably wouldn't be happening if there had been better communication between police and his office.
Police said they wouldn't comment because the grand jury is still at work.
