HUNTSVILLE (WATE) - A grand jury returned indictments against the man accused in the shooting death of a Scott County food pantry director.

Josiah Samuel Jones is charged with first degree murder and being a felon in possession of a gun, for killing Jerry Voiles, 58, at the shelter where he worked.

Jones was captured in Alabama, where he allegedly fled after the shooting.

He entered a not guilty plea at a hearing back in June.

The motive is still unclear, but authorities say Jones attended anger management classes with Voiles.
