Grand Jury hands down murder indictment in June shooting death

Corsicana — The Navarro County Grand Jury issued 51 indictments against 42 individuals in its September meeting held Thursday at the Navarro County Courthouse.

The panel indicted Darwon D. Richardson, 27, on a charge of murder in the connection with the June 12, 2013 shooting death of LeQuirea Rochelle Chaney of Corsicana.
