Franklin County Man Indicted on Capital Murder Charge

Jerrold Greene - Indicted

Franklin Co., VA - A Franklin County man has been indicted for capital murder on charges that he killed his former best friend.

A grand jury indicted Jerrold Greene on a number of charges. The 20-year-old is accused of killing 19-year-old Alex Ernandes in January.

Investigators say Greene confessed to the murder. They testified at a hearing last month that Greene told them Ernandes punched his girlfriend in the stomach, causing her to miscarry, and that's why he killed him.

No trial date has been set.
