(Madison, Ind.) - Prosecutors charged a former Madison Correctional Facility employee for her connection to a deadly triple stabbing that occurred earlier this month in Indianapolis. 

According to a report from Fox 59, Kristen Wolf, 28, was charged with two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, and one count of attempted battery by means of a deadly weapon. 

On Monday, May 11, Wolf killed two people and seriously injured a third person in a stabbing at a west side apartment complex in Indianapolis. 

Fox 59 reported police saying, 24-year-old Victoria Cook was ambushed ad stabbed to death by Wolf after answering a knock on her door. A second victim, 28-year-old Dylan Dickover, tried to stop the attack but later died when Wolf stabbed him in the leg, severing a major artery.

There were three other people inside the apartment who survived. None of them knew the attacker. 

On scene, officers located a hat that Wolf had lost. The hat had Indiana Department of Corrections stitched on a patch, and her name written on the tag. 

On Friday, May 22 Wolf was arrested at the Madison Correctional Facility while working, during her interview Wolf denied she was in Indianapolis on May 11.

Fox 59 reported that police executed a search warrant on her home where they found a two-page note on her bedroom nightstand. 

The note written by Wolf described how she wondered what it would be like to kill someone and how she took inspiration from serial killers. She also wrote that she didn't want to kill someone she knew, and how she wasn't planning to die but was prepared for it. 

Police also found that a short signed will was also attached, with the date being May 11, 2020, the day of the murders. 

Wolf had her initial hearing this morning Friday, May 29, and her pretrial conference is scheduled for September 30. 

Wolf currently remains in the Marion County Jail.
