Jose Medina and Donald Eugene Sharp are charged with the April 19 shooting of Bryan Dunbar Jewell.
According to this week’s indictment and authorities at the time of the shooting:
Walker deputies arrived at 806 Castleberry Drive, off Old Mineral Springs Road in LaFayette, and discovered the body of 45-year-old Jewell inside the residence.
The Emergency 911 Center had received an anonymous call from a pay telephone.
Medina was Jewell’s neighbor, and Sharp was a previous resident in the neighborhood.
Prosecutors believe Jewell was shot outside his residence and stumbled inside, where he collapsed in a bedroom. The fatal wound was to his abdomen.
The grand jury also indicted Medina and Sharp with criminal attempt for trying to set a box of newspapers on fire and throwing a Molotov cocktail inside Jewell’s house.
The grand jury indictment states the pair possessed a Mossberg Maverick 12-gauge shotgun and a Winchester .30-.30 rifle, likely used as the murder weapons.
Sharp is also accused of possessing marijuana at the time of the murder.
