McGee was discovered shot to death inside her insurance office on Jan. 6.  Barnes was also indicted on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted criminal.         

Two lay witnesses and a Sanford Police Department investigator testified before the grand jury before the indictment was returned. Barnes was arrested in Orlando on Jan. 8 and remains in the Seminole County Jail where he is being held without bond.

 

            Terry Leroy Tillman, 26, 1119 Locust Ave., Sanford, was indicted for the March 3, 2009, murder of Danny Lawson. Tillman also faces one charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

            Tillman was arrested at the Seminole County Jail on Jan. 27 this year and remains in the jail on a no bond status. The grand jury heard testimony from a Sanford Police Department investigator before returning the indictment.

 

            Christopher and Manuel Rodriguez, 19-year-old fraternal twins, 9848 Downey Hill St., Orlando, were both indicted for first-degree premeditated murder for the Jan. 20 shooting death of Tevin Davis on the side of State Road 436 in Altamonte Springs. Christopher was also charged with possession of cocaine and Manuel was also charged with fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer. 

            The grand jurors heard testimony from three lay witnesses and an Altamonte Springs Police Department detective before returning the charges. The Rodriguez brothers remain in the Seminole County Jail where they are being held without bond.
