MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A grand jury seated this week in Berkeley County has indicted one of the suspects in the October 2005 homicide of Donald Lee Redman of Martinsburg, according to county court documents.

New York City resident John James Grant, 21, aka "Butter," was indicted Wednesday on one count of murder by grand jurors who are expected to reconvene today. The sequestered panel already has handed up more than 60 true bills since Tuesday.

Grant was placed in the custody of Martinsburg Police Department in July, nine months after Redman was found dead on the porch of a Third Street residence, Berkeley County Magistrate Court records show.

Arrested in February in New York on charges of marijuana possession, Grant is being held without bond in Eastern Regional Jail.
