A Bibb County grand jury indicted a Macon man on a murder charge Tuesday.
Robert Lee Reeves Jr., 29, of St. Charles Place, was charged with murder in the July 2009 slaying of Crystal Morgan, a 23-year-old single mother who was strangled in the woods between Marigold and Pio Nono avenues.
Investigators believe that Morgan, a mother of three, was sexually assaulted before she was killed, according to previous reports, but there was no rape charge in Tuesday’s indictment.
Reeves was charged Jan. 4 and is being held in the Bibb County jail. He has previous convictions for attempted rape, entering an auto, theft by receiving and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
