MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  The Rutherford County Grand Jury has indicted a man on multiple murder and assault charges in connection with the shootings of two Middle Tennessee State University students in April.

The Rutherford County Clerk’s Office says the jury yesterday returned four counts of Attempted First Degree Murder and six counts of Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon.

Murfreesboro Police arrested Lindsey on April 4 for the shooting of two MTSU students at University Gables Apartments. Police says when they arrived on the scene they found 19-year-old student Dartavious Brettenum lying in the parking lot. He had been shot several times.

Also wounded was 19-year-old Travious Miller. Both men were flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center by Life Flight helicopter. Both have since recovered from their wounds.

At the time of his arrest, Lindsey was charged with just two counts of murder and 2 counts of assault. It’s unclear why additional charges were added to the indictment.

Jakeil Lindsey will be arraigned in Rutherford County Criminal Court on November 19. Judge David Bragg will preside over the case.
