Murder Charge Filed in Fatal Shooting

(La Porte, IN) - A murder charge was filed in connection with a fatal shooting in La Porte last week.


John McCaw, 62, is being held in La Porte County Jail without bond.


McCaw was taken into custody following the Thursday evening shooting and then charged Sunday after La Porte Circuit Court Judge Tom Alevizos ruled that the evidence gathered by investigators was sufficient for McCaw to answer the allegations.


Nancy Ainsworth, 57, was shot in the head at her home at 906 Ridge Street. She was transported to Northwest Health, where she was pronounced dead. 


So far, what led up to the shooting and other details about the case are unavailable.
