OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A Lafayette County grand jury has indicted three men on capital murder charges in the death of a University of Mississippi graduate student in December.

WTVA-TV in Tupelo reports (https://bit.ly/OmnVIa ) that circuit court documents show Steven Matthew Wilbanks of North Carolina, Derrick Boone of Laurel and Joseph Lyons of Houston, Texas were indicted by a grand jury in February.

The three men are charged in the fatal shooting of Zach McClendon, who was found dead at an apartment in the College Hill community on Dec. 17.

Authorities say the men then took McClendon’s car and three textbooks.

At the time of their arrest, Wilbanks and Boone were enrolled at the school.

Lyons was a former student.

All three are being held without bond in the Lafayette County jail.
