The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says a grand jury returned an indictment for the charge of murder for Marvin Chevez-Quiffaro, 18, for his involvement in the shooting death of 18-year-old Terale Claridy-Vaught. Chevez-Quiffaro had previously been charged with accessory after the fact to murder. He was arrested Wednesday morning and transferred to Mecklenburg County Jail.
