A Lexington man has been indicted on a murder charge in connection with the June 7 shooting death of Montez Graves.
Jermaine Anderson, 21, also was indicted by a Fayette County grand jury on charges of first-degree assault, tampering with evidence, possession of a controlled substance and fleeing police.
Anderson is accused of shooting Graves, 31, and Frederick Thomas Spillman, 32, as they were inside a car on Whitney Avenue. Graves died of his injury; Spillman survived.
Lexington police saw Anderson toss an object that turned out to be a 9 mm handgun that matched shell casings and a bullet from the killing.

Anderson matched a caller's description, and he ran when officers tried to stop him, according to testimony at a preliminary hearing.
Graves' uncle, Ronnie Graves, 54, was shot inside a separate vehicle a few blocks away on the same night. Ronnie Graves was in the area of Charles Avenue at Hickory Street when he was shot.
Anderson is scheduled for arraignment Aug. 20 in Fayette Circuit Court.
