OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma’s multicounty grand jury has reconvened.

The grand jury reconvened Tuesday and will meet through Thursday at the Attorney General’s Office in Oklahoma City.

The grand jury was requested by Attorney General Scott Pruitt and approved by the Oklahoma Supreme Court in September 2012. It is led by Assistant Attorney General Megan Tilly, chief of the AG’s Multicounty Grand Jury Unit.

The state’s multicounty grand jury has jurisdiction to investigate criminal matters in all 77 counties, assisting local law enforcement as well as handling matters of state interest. Each month, grand jurors meet to hear testimony for two to three days. The proceedings are closed to the public and the nature of the investigations are not made public.

So far, the 14th Oklahoma multicounty grand jury has returned 13 indictments.
