BLACKSBURG, Va. (WSET) — A grand jury handed down an indictment for former Virginia Tech football player Isimemen Etute on suspicion of second degree murder Tuesday.
Etute is accused of murdering 40-year-old Jerry Smith of Blacksburg after the two allegedly connected through the dating app Tinder with Smith posing as someone named "Angie."

The indictment was issued by the Montgomery County Circuit Court. Etute is expected to appear in court again on Nov. 18.
Etute last appeared in court for a preliminary hearing in September, where he was confronted in the parking lot by a member of Smith's family.
She screamed, "Justice for Jerry," and said he did not deserve it.
“He would not hurt a flea. He was the kindest guy around and wasn’t afraid to tell you he was gay,” she said.

“He did not deserve to die just because your son has sexual encounters and couldn’t admit it," one of Smith's family members said.
