Man Indicted on in Motel Murder

A man accused of beating another man to death with a bedpost appeared before a court today. A grand jury indicted 43-year-old Reginald Thompson for killing Steven Shumate.

It happened two years ago on July 13 at the Savannah Motor Lodge on Ogeechee Road. Police believe the murder was drug related.

Thompson is now awaiting trial at the Chatham County jail.
