A Georgia grand jury indicted Jose Ibarra Tuesday. According to documents from Fox News, he is charged in Augusta University nursing student Laken Riley's murder.

The grand jury indicted Ibarra on counts of malice murder, two counts of kidnapping with bodily injury, two counts of aggravated assault with intent to rape, two counts of aggravated battery, obstructing or hindering a person from making a 911 call, tampering with evidence and being a "peeping Tom."

Ibarra is also accused of 'peeping' on a University of Georgia staff member the same day he allegedly killed Riley.

He is accused of causing Riley's death by inflicting blunt-force trauma to her head and "asphyxiating her in a manner unknown to jurors," the indictment states.

Riley was a nursing student at the Augusta University College of Nursing’s Athens campus. She went for a jog on Feb. 22 and was later found dead behind Lake Herrick at the University of Georgia campus.
