HUDSON, Fla. (AP) - A man who was charged with four counts of first-degree murder in Pasco County has been indicted by a grand jury.

In Florida, prosecutors cannot seek the death penalty for first-degree murder without a grand jury indictment.

Adam Matos was a wanted fugitive after four bodies were found rotting on a hill near the house where he was staying with his former girlfriend’s family. He disappeared with his young son and was found and arrested Sept. 5 in the early-morning hours at a hotel in Tampa. The 4-year-old child was not harmed.

Matos is accused of killing his son’s mother, Megan Brown, her parents, Margaret and Gregory Brown, and Nicholas Leonard, whom Megan Brown had recently begun dating. The Tampa Bay Times (https://bit.ly/1oi3XtS) reports that Matos has been in jail since his arrest.
