Indiana State Police investigators arrested three people Saturday, Jan. 5, in connection with the murder of Nancy Hershman, 68, Milan.

The investigation led investigators to Colerain Township outside of Cincinnati. With the assistance of Colerain Township Police, 22-year-old Allison Moore and two 16-year-old males from Colerain Township were arrested at their residences without incident, said Indiana State Police Sgt. Noel Houze Jr., Versailles District Public Information Officer.

Moore is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center in Cincinnati on a preliminary charge of Murder and the two juveniles are also being held in juvenile detention in Cincinnati on juvenile charges in connection with the murder, said Houze.

Formal charges are expected to be filed today or Tuesday in Ripley County. If Moore agrees to waive extradition, she could be brought back to Ripley County as early as this week. If extradition is not waived, it could take several weeks before Moore can be brought to Indiana, said Houze.

Investigators determined this incident was a random act and the suspects were driving around and came to Indiana and decided to break into a home. Once inside they were apparently confronted by Hershman and during the confrontation, Hershman was shot and killed in the early morning hours of Sunday, Dec. 30, said Houze.

Indiana State Police Det. Sgt. Tom Baxter said he is grateful to the Colerain Township Police Department for their outstanding cooperation and assistance in locating and apprehending the suspects in this investigation.

The investigation is still active and could result in more arrests, added Houze.
