 Gibson County man charged in 1992 slayings of woman, daughter in Indiana

A Gibson County is being charged with murder in the 1992 fatal shootings of an Indiana woman and her 4-year-old daughter.

The FBI said Monday that 57-year-old Victor Lofton, of Humboldt, was charged last week in Lake County, Indiana, with two counts of murder in the July 1992 killings of 21-year-old Felicia Howard and her daughter, DenNisha Howard.

They were found dead inside their Gary, Indiana apartment.

The FBI says Lofton was arrested Friday in Jackson by the Jackson Police Department and is currently awaiting extradition back to Indiana.

The FBI’s Gang Response Investigative Team began looking into the unsolved Gary case in 2019.
