UPDATE: Four kids, mother from Amber Alert found safe; ex-boyfriend arrested

ELKHART — A mother and her four children were found safe Tuesday night at a motel, three days after police said they were abducted by the woman’s former boyfriend.

The man, Jerry D. White, 30, was arrested, Detective Sgt. Bill Wargo said.

Authorities issued an Amber Alert for the four children, ages 16 months to 9 years old, and their mother, 31-year-old Kimberly N. Walker, on Saturday.

Police said White broke into Walker’s house about 2 a.m. Saturday and shot her sister’s boyfriend, Lathie Turnage, 30, of Chicago, once in the face and once in the chest. White then held everyone captive until leaving with Walker and the children nearly 10 hours later, police said.

An arrest warrant was issued charging Walker with attempted murder and several counts of confinement. Police said Walker was the father of all four children.

Turnage was reported in critical but stable condition on Monday at Elkhart General Hospital. An updated condition was not immediately available.

Police said White had been harassing Walker for several days and that her sister and her sister’s boyfriend were staying with the family. Walker reported to police Friday that White had confined her in her car before stealing it, authorities said.
