On Wednesday, June 25, a special investigative grand jury convened on the motion of Commonwealth's Attorney James P. Fisher, and returned a three-count indictment against Carroll Gregg Jr., suspected of shooting and killing a man who tried to repossess his truck.
The indictments allege two theories of first-degree murder as well as a charge of using a firearm commission of murder.
"We have elected to proceed under the special grand jury statute on different charges than were previously alleged by arrest warrant,” said Fisher in a release.
Gregg was previously charged by an arrest warrant which alleged second-degree murder in connection with the killing of a tow truck driver
who was repossessing Gregg's vehicle on June 6. Junior Jordan Montero Sanchez, 23, of Hyattsville was killed during the repossession attempt.
"This procedure puts us before the Circuit Court (felony trial court) immediately on the new charges which allege first-degree murder," said Fisher.
Gregg has filed a motion for release on bail to be heard on Monday, July 7 at 10 a.m.
"The Commonwealth will strenuously oppose any motion for release on bail," Fisher said.
Virginia law carries a presumption against bail bond in a violent crime such as murder, but the accused may proceed in a motion before the court with an effort to rebut that presumption and be granted release on bail.
