   COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) -- A southern Indiana man considered the sole suspect in the May shooting deaths of four people has now been charged in those killings.
 
   WIBC-FM reports Bartholomew County prosecutors charged 56-year-old Samuel Earl Sallee on Friday with four counts of murder.
 
   Bartholomew County Sheriff's Maj. Todd Noblitt says the Columbus man became a person of interest shortly after the May 11 slayings of 53-year-old Katheryn Burton, her 39-year-old boyfriend, Thomas Smith, and two friends, Aaron Cross and Shawn Burton, both 41-year-old Columbus residents.
 
   Their bodies were found in a home in Waynesville, a small town about 45 miles south of Indianapolis.
 
   Sallee was jailed two days after the killings for failing to appear in court on unrelated battery charges. He's being held at a federal facility on firearms charges.
