The finding of a TRUE BILL means that the defendants will now be arraigned and will face trial at a later date. A NO TRUE BILL is a procedure to dismiss charges against a defendant when the grand jury does not find enough evidence to charge the defendant with violating a law.

The Honorable Judge Meshon T. Rawls received the grand jury findings, and no bond was issued on the first degree murder counts for the defendants.

Alachua County Sheriff Clovis Watson Jr. released the following statement: “[My team and I] are pleased with the decision of the Grand Jury and thank the State Attorney’s Office for their hard work. These cases are not always solved overnight, but due to the tenacity and dedication of the detectives and investigators from ASO and the State Attorney’s Office, we continue to pursue justice for all, no matter how long it takes.
