Plantation Ct Update


The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office has identified the victims as Santanna Douglas and Donte Meriwether. The two had been previously married. 

The suspect, Ernest Douglas, was married to Santanna Douglas at the time of her death. Although legally married, Santanna had prior issues with her Ernest that led to him being barred from the Plantation Ct home in June of 2019. During that incident, there was a reported fight between Ernest Douglas and Donte

Meriwether. On July 29, 2019, a trespassing in progress call was made alleging Ernest Douglas was at the home. 

The deaths appear to be domestic violence related. The investigation is ongoing, but additional suspects are being sought at this time.
