Suspect indicted on murder charges
A 26-year-old man was indicted this week in the slaying of a man in December.
The Clark County grand jury indicted Jesus Jaramillo on charges of murder with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon, grand larceny and burglary.
He was charged in the Dec. 30 fatal shooting of Abraham Harely, 30, in a house on the 8000 block of Wards Ferry Street, near Decatur Boulevard and state Route 160.
Jaramillo and several others had stayed at Harely’s house for several days before the shooting. Jaramillo believed Harely had sexually assaulted a woman, authorities said.
Jaramillo has been in the Clark County Detention Center since his Feb. 19 arrest. Prosecutors intend to seek the death penalty.
