Man, 19, indicted in killing of pizza driver

The Associated Press

        WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, Ohio — One of two men accused in the killing of a pizza delivery driver was indicted Friday on aggravated murder charges with death penalty specifications, a Fayette County sheriff's deputy said.

        The county grand jury issued the indictment against Matthew McCullough, 19, who is accused of killing Precious Canter, 31, said sheriff's Lt. Dale Butler.

        Mr. McCullough also was indicted on charges of aggravated robbery, kidnapping and rape, all felonies.

        He is in the county jail with bond set at $1 million. His court hearing is scheduled Monday.

        Lt. Butler said he could not disclose whether the grand jury had indicted Kevin D. Terry, who also is accused in Ms. Canter's death. Authorities have charged Mr. Terry with complicity to aggravated murder.

        Two teen-age boys arrested during the weekend and charged with complicity to aggravated murder remain in the Southern Ohio Juvenile Detention Center, Terry said.

        Ms. Canter was found dead June 29 near her car in an alley behind a middle school parking lot.
