D.A.: Case Still Active Despite Absent Bill from Grand Jury

Although a Geneva County grand jury has refused to indict a man in the shooting of a Hartford restaurant owner, authorities say the case remains active.

Last week, the grand jury refused to indict Curtis Ingram in connection with the shooting of 78-year-old James Burk at the Railroad Restaurant last November.

Initially, Ingram was charged with attempted murder and first degree robbery.

Dale/Geneva County District Attorney Kirk Adams says the case will not be swept away or simply disappear. He added, "I think this case can be a solid case if we tie-up all the loose ends, and answer the questions raised by the grand jury. It’ll be the same grand jury. I don't think it will be a problem at all."

Adams assured the victim's family that all efforts will be made to bring the person responsible to justice.
