A Grimes County Grand Jury indicted a young Houston man recently for the first degree murder of a Conroe man here in Grimes earlier this year.
District Attorney Tuck McLain says 19-year-old Tyrus Jamond Peters is currently residing in the Grimes County Jail on a million dollar bond, accused of killing David Avery Brown near Stoneham.
McLain says the outcome of the investigation has convinced his office that Peters is responsible.
He said Brown allegedly owed Peters around $350 and was trying to square his account on the night he was killed.
Peters was later picked-up in Houston and transported to the Grimes County Jail where he reportedly admitted to the deed. But, the DA insists he will still get his day in court.
And while the date of his forthcoming trial has yet to be set, McLain says if Peters is found guilty, the young man could spend the rest of his days behind bars and have to pay up to $10,000.00 in fines.
