Kidd and Yeast are thought to have known each other, according to police. Investigators identified Kidd as a suspect after interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence.
Kidd also was indicted on a charge of attempted murder “when he unlawfully fired a handgun at Courtney Bowen, which was a substantial step in a course of conduct planned to culminate in the death” of Bowen, the indictment said.
The grand jury also indicted Kidd on a charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun and for being a persistent felony offender.
The indictment said Kidd had been convicted on charges of wanton endangerment in 2014, possession of a controlled substance in 2008, and tampering with evidence in 2008.
Kidd is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 21 in Fayette Circuit Court. He remains in the Fayette County jail.
