A man was formally indicted for the murder of a young mother on Christmas night.

Byron Frazier, 27, appeared in front of a grand jury on Thursday, accused of killing 20-year-old Kyila Shields in a double shooting in Westwood.

He is also accused of shooting Adam Deters and harming a two-month-old baby.
