On Sept. 15, WJTV reported a two-count indictment was handed down on Greer by a Warren County Grand Jury.

Greer is now charged with murder in the death of his sister, as well as possession of a weapon after a felony conviction, officials said.

He was indicted as a habitual offender also, since he has prior felony convictions, authorities said.
