The DeKalb County district attorney’s office on Tuesday announced the indictment of Quentric Williams. He’s charged in the May 15 death of 28-year-old Mitt Lenix.

Williams faces charges including malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, aggravated assault on a peace officer, and fleeing or attempting to elude police.
