More than two months after a murder suspect bonded out of jail, a grand jury indicted him on 13 charges, according to records filed this past weekend. 

Dexter Hubbard, 19, was taken into custody Saturday on murder charges by U.S. Marshals, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported. He also faces burglary, home invasion, aggravated assault and child cruelty charges, according to the indictment. 

Police said Hubbard shot and killed Soloman Williams, 58, on Aug. 7 as Williams changed the locks on his home on Gossamer Street. Williams’ wife and children were inside at the time.

Hubbard surrendered Aug. 11 at the Fulton County jail and was held there until a judge granted him bond, authorities said. He was released Sept. 27 after he posted a $155,000 bond.

Fulton County Chief Magistrate Judge Cassandra Kirk told Channel 2 Action News that Hubbard wasn’t indicted in the case and was therefore released.
