Pamela Moss, accused of killing a McDonough businessman in March and stashing his body under her back porch, was indicted in Jones County Superior Court this week.
Moss, 54, has been in jail since March 21 after her arrest in connection with the slaying of 67-year-old Doug Coker, a man shed had business dealings with, authorities have said.
Coker, whose body was found March 18 at Moss house in the River North subdivision just north of Macon, died of blunt-force trauma to his head.
Investigators have not divulged what he may have been struck with.
We have an idea, Fred Bright, the Ocmulgee Circuit district attorney, said Thursday.
Bright presented the case to a grand jury Tuesday. Moss murder indictment was returned Thursday.
No trial date has been set, but Bright said the case could go to trial by years end.
Investigators think Coker was killed March 13 when he was in the Macon area to meet Moss, a grant writer and nonprofit manager who was apparently helping Coker set up a charity housing endeavor.
If convicted, Moss could face life in prison without parole.
Moss, accused of fatally poisoning her mother in Macon in 1996, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in 1997 and was sent to prison until 2005.
At this point, it doesnt appear prosecutors can seek the death penalty against Moss.
For prosecutors to make a capital case in Georgia, a crime must include one of several aggravating circumstances. One of those circumstances is having a prior murder conviction.
Had Moss been convicted of murdering her 64-year-old mother, Barbara Frye, Moss alleged hand in Cokers slaying may have made her eligible for the death penalty.
