Share this post

Authorities in Porter County have charged a 57 year old Starke County man accused of killing his estranged wife in his Knox home last week with one-count of felony carjacking. Indiana State Police Lowell Post reports Gary Chavez car-jacked a total of three vehicles, two in Starke County and one in Porter County, during the course of events that transpired on Friday afternoon that led to a pursuit that crossed numerous county roads, involving multiple law enforcement agencies, until he ultimately lost control of the vehicle he was driving in Crown Point, at Maine and 109th Avenue, after stop sticks were thrown out.
Chavez remains in critical condition at an Illinois hospital after he shot himself following the pursuit Friday. Charges related to what occurred in Starke County will be released when they become available.
