KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

A Kenton County Grand Jury has indicted a third person in the shooting death of a Covington teen.

Christopher R. Hill, 23, of Covington, was indicted on murder and robbery charges in connection with the death of Brett Thornberry.

Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders says Hill shot and killed Thornberry on Greenup Street on December 20, 2011.

Two other teens were also previously indicted in connection with Thornberry's murder.

Romello Rice, a former Holmes High School football player, was indicted in March of 2012 and an unnamed 15-year-old boy was also arrested and charged.

The unnamed teen is still awaiting trial.

Officials say Rice took a plea deal and is testifying against Hill.

Hill is scheduled to be arraigned on December 10.

Sanders says Hill is eligible for the death penalty but they aren't sure if they will pursue it.
