GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a boater involved in a deadly crash on Lake Lanier who now faces homicide charges.

The Times of Gainesville reports that a Hall County grand jury indicted Paul J. Bennett of Cumming in connection with the June 18 collision that killed 13-year-old Griffin Prince and his 9-year-old brother, Jake, both of Buford.

The charges include first-degree homicide by vessel, boating under the influence and refusing to surrender aid.

Griffin Prince’s body was found in the lake several days after a fishing boat collided with a pontoon boat he and his family members were aboard. Jake Prince died at the scene.
