A man and a juvenile were indicted Wednesday on charges stemming from the slaying of another man in October.
Sayvon Azell Thompson, 20, and Chauncey Anthony Ingram are charged with murder, first-degree robbery and tampering with physical evidence in the Oct. 17 shooting death of 19-year-old Jeffrey I. Adams, according to an indictment in Fayette Circuit Court.
