City woman gets 8 years for role in Ligonier killings

October 6, 2018

A Fort Wayne woman has been sentenced to eight years in prison for her role in the March shooting deaths of two people in Ligonier. 

Tiffani Cox, 31, pleaded guilty last month to aiding attempted robbery. Charges of felony murder and attempted robbery were dropped during her sentencing hearing Wednesday.

Cox, Michael J. Johnson, 36, and Kyra Frost, 25, were all charged in the March 5 shooting deaths of Amanda Feldstein, 39, and Justin Adams, 30.

Johnson told police he, Cox and Frost went to Feldstein’s Ligonier apartment under the pretext of selling methamphetamine, but they were really after a $10,000 Prada handbag.

Johnson is accused of shooting Feldstein and Adams at the apartment. He also allegedly shot at and missed Amberly Brown, who called police.

A search of Johnson’s car by Indiana State Police revealed hypodermic needles and several purses, court documents said.

Johnson is charged with two counts of murder, two counts of felony murder and one count of attempted murder.

Frost is charged with two counts of felony murder and aiding armed robbery. Both have pretrial conferences Nov. 13.
