SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a 17-year-old Ohio boy in the April shooting of a standout high school football player.

The teen is charged with murder in the Easter morning slaying of 17-year-old Jeff Wellington at a Springfield apartment complex.

The suspect was captured after a search that stretched for more than two weeks after the April 20 incident. A judge on May 29 ruled the boy can be tried as an adult and his case could be presented to a grand jury.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1q3in5I ) reports that he was indicted by the Clark County grand jury Monday.


At a probable cause hearing, three witnesses testified that they were in the parking lot of the apartment complex and saw the suspect pull the trigger.
