The Bay County Grand Jury indicted three people on Wednesday in the torture and murder of an elderly Panama City man.
Grand jurors indicted David Ian Challender, 27, Ashley Nichole Griffin, 28, and Kevin Gene Jeffries, 28, of first-degree murder, armed burglary and armed robbery.
According to sheriff’s investigators, the three beat and strangled 90-year-old Wallace Scott in his Lynn Haven home April 4.
Prosecutors will decide within the week whether the facts of the case meet the statutory requirements to pursue the death penalty.
All three are scheduled for arraignment May 28.
