The former roommate of a Berry College student who was shot to death in their apartment has been indicted by a Floyd County Grand Jury on a charge of tampering with evidence.
Andrew David Horton was a witness for the prosecution in an October 2018 trial in which two men were found not guilty of murdering Joseph P. McDaniel, 20, while robbing him of drugs. The incident took place Oct. 28, 2017, at the Summerstone Apartments.
According to testimony at the trial, Horton was given limited immunity in exchange for assisting prosecutors. He admitted removing marijuana and other evidence and hiding it in a neighbor’s apartment before calling 911 to report McDaniel had been shot.
A Rome woman accused of Facebook stalking and a prison inmate discovered with a cellphone also are on the list of true bills returned by the grand jury last week.
Jean Emmanuel Desrosiers, 24, of 50 Heaton Hills Drive, Covington, was in the Floyd County Prison on Blacks Bluff Road on Sept. 11, 2018, when guards found a Verizon touch screen phone stashed inside a bag of potato chips.
Desrosiers is charged with felony possession of contraband by an inmate.
Ebony Prianna Kelley, 18, of 6 Verbena St., is charged with felony aggravated stalking after she reportedly posted a Facebook rant about a woman and tagged her in violation of a conditional bond to have no contact with her.
The charge in the indictment does not necessarily show all the charges filed against a person accused of a crime.
