GEORGETOWN — A Scott County grand jury indicted two people Friday in connection with a burglary and the slaying of Glenda Sue Jones in 2010.

Nicholas Willinger, 30, was indicted on charges of murder, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary. He was arrested Feb. 1.

Ciji L. Jefferson, 28, of Sadieville in Scott County, was indicted on a charge of complicity to second-degree burglary. She was arrested this week in Florida.

Jones, a former Scott County bus driver, was found dead in her house near Sadieville on Feb. 4, 2010. The county coroner found that she died of blunt-force trauma to the head.

Willinger's indictment says he broke into Jones' home, robbed and injured her. The indictment also says Willinger "intentionally caused the death of a Sue Jones by striking her in the head with a blunt object."

Jefferson's indictment says she told Willinger that Jones had a large amount of money at her home on Double Culvert Road and wouldn't be home on that date.

The indictment also says that Jefferson accompanied Willinger to Jones' house and, "intending to share in the proceeds of the burglary, waited outside the residence in a vehicle" while Willinger went into the house.

Willinger was being held in the Scott County jail on a $500,000 bond. Jefferson was being held in a jail in Osceola County, Fla.

The two are scheduled to be arraigned March 7 before Scott Circuit Judge Paul Isaacs.

The indictments were direct indictments, meaning Willinger and Jefferson were indicted without a district court judge first finding probable cause and then sending the cases to circuit court.

Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Keith Eardley had no comment Friday on the indictments or whether any other arrests are pending.
