Two people have been indicted on charges stemming from the death of a Wheeling Jesuit University student.
The grand jury also charged 24-year-old Jarrett Mathis Chandler of Winnfield, La., with misdemeanor involuntary manslaughter.

The defendants remain in custody at the Northern Regional Jail on $1 million each.
