The Grand Jury also charged Devon Turner with one count each of receiving stolen property and having weapons under disability.

Paul Turner, 23, was indicted on two counts of obstructing justice and one count each of having weapons under disability and tampering with evidence.

According to McGinty, at the time of Brennan’s killing, there was a warrant out for the Turner brothers because they didn’t show at their June 4 arraignment on charges that included felonious assault, aggravated robbery and cruelty to animals.
