A Franklin County grand jury has indicted a Frankfort man in the death of a victim's advocate who was found two months ago inside a truck in a Frankfort parking lot.
Alastair Martel Couch, 33, is charged with murder, two counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun, tampering with physical evidence and being a persistent felony offender.
The indictment alleges that Couch fatally shot Tomma Graves, 37, who was found dead the morning of Aug. 2 on the 300 block of Washington Street in Frankfort.
Graves had worked with the commonwealth's attorney's office and the county attorney's office since 2007.

According to the indictment, Couch was convicted in April 2005 in Tennessee on charges of kidnapping, fleeing and evading police, and aggravated assault.
Frankfort police Maj. Fred Deaton referred questions about the case to Fayette Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Larson.
Larson declined to comment.
Couch will be arraigned Oct. 8 in Franklin County.
