Carroll County’s prosecutor has decided to step down while two of the highest profile investigations the county has ever seen remain unsolved.
Robert Ives’ wife said he will step down at the end of the year for a variety of personal reasons.
Ives told WLFI the timing was right for him to leave.
Ives was first appointed prosecutor in 1987.
He went through a volley of election wins and losses over the years, but most recently has been the prosecutor for Carroll County going on seven years.
Ives steps down amid the investigation into who killed 2 girls in Delphi in February and 4 girls being killed in an intentionally set fire in Flora.
