The next involved the death of 63-year-old Bobby Scott, of Daytona Beach.  Twenty-year-old Michael Harris, Jr. was found in Scott's car six days after he went missing. Harris was originally charged with second-degree murder but the grand jury upped the charge.

The third lists the cause of death of the victim, 51-year-old Michael Ordway, as an overdose of Fentanyl. The grand jury indicted 44-year-old Lee Ardis Wiley II in the death.

Seventh Circuit State Attorney R.J. Larizza says the grand jury that issued the indictments was chosen on Monday, heard the cases presented by prosecutors, and got to work. "That begins the prosection of each of those individuals within Volusia County by the State Attorney's Office."

Larizza said there was also an indictment in a Daytona Beach Police (DBPD) case. The suspect, Anthony Adum, according to DBPD, deliberately hit and killed, 45-year-old Christopher Watson. "Adum was also charged with DUI Manslaughter. Leaving the Scene, several charges but First-Degree Murder based on the circumstances."
