STARLIGHT, IN (WAVE) – A community mourns a beloved couple as the teens accused of murdering them in their home could face the death penalty.

Kevin Schuler, 18, and Austin Scott, 18, are charged with stabbing Gary Henderson to death and bludgeoning his longtime partner, Senie Arnold in her bed. Both teens face murder and robbery charges.

More than 150 friends, family and even some strangers came out to hear stories and support the families of Henderson and Arnold.  

The Harrison County couple was murdered in their home in early August, in a way most can't even bear to think about it. Arnold's sister, Serena Newkirk says it's the support from others that has gotten her through.

"We have been so blessed with so much just from everyone," said Newkirk. "It has just been amazing the people that have come out to show their support for us."

Henderson worked for Huber's Family Farm for nearly two decades giving carriage and pony rides. The couple was known for their love of animals.

"He loved the horses, he loved the kids" said Sue-Z Schemlz, Gary Henderson's daughter. "He just loved the people. He would talk about them all the time."

On Friday night, Huber's invited those who knew Henderson and Arnold best to share a memory and unveil a monument that will forever remember the couple at the farm.

"It says ‘In loving memory of Gary Henderson and Senie Arnold. Your kindness and friendship will always be remembered'," said Joe Huber, owner of Joe Huber's Family Farm.  

"The Huber family has been so great with us and what they are doing tonight just means the world to us and I just know dad would be so proud. Dad and Senie both," said Schemlz.

"I don't think they really had any idea how many lives they've touched. None of us did. We knew they touched a lot of people, but I just don't think they would have believed they would have touched this many," said Newkirk.

The families say they will continue to follow this case play out in court and seek justice for the couple.

If you would like to help the family, you can still make a donation in their names at Swarens Funeral Home in Ramsey.
