Christopher Whitaker

Christopher Whitaker, 44, is accused of killing 14-year-old Alianna DeFreeze. He is indicted on four counts of aggravated murder, two counts of kidnapping, one count of rape, one count of aggravated burglary, one count of offense against a human corpse and one count of tampering with evidence. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Whitaker. Alianna was found dead inside an abandoned Fuller Avenue home on January 29.

Police found DNA at the scene where Alianna's body was found and linked it to Whitaker, who has past convictions for sexual battery and felonious assault.
