Three people were indicted Tuesday for the April 17 fatal shooting of University of Kentucky student Jonathan Krueger.
Efrain Diaz Jr., Justin Delone Smith and the previously unnamed 17-year-old, Roman Gonzalez Jr., were all charged with murder and two counts of first-degree robbery, according to court records. Gonzalez is being tried as an adult, Commonwealth attorney Andrea Williams said.
Additionally, Smith was charged with tampering with evidence and fleeing police.
Krueger and Aaron Gillette were walking down East Maxwell Street, on their way home, when Diaz, Smith and Gonzalez decided to rob Krueger and Gillette, detective Reed Bowles testified in a May 7 preliminary hearing. Krueger was fatally shot, but Gillette was able to get away.
