Charges expected for Canon City killings suspect

CANON CITY - A sex offender accused of killing a woman and two of her children in Canon City is due back in court.

Prosecutors are expected to announce charges against Jaacob Vanwinkle during today's hearing  now that they've been able to review evidence in the case.

Authorities say Vanwinkle and the mother had dated and he was living with the family.

Vanwinkle was convicted in Indiana of child molestation and other sex crimes involving girls as young as 5 and 7 in 2004. He failed to register as a sex offender after moving to Canon City and authorities were pursuing him because of that before he was arrested in the killings.
