A Mesa man has been indicted in connection with a killing earlier this month on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community between Mesa and Scottsdale.

A federal grand jury in Phoenix on Tuesday returned a one-count indictment for second-degree murder against 23-year-old Tommy Eugene Medley Jr.

Prosecutors say Medley was arrested on June 17 after a man was killed on the reservation the previous day.

He remains in federal custody pending trial. It was unclear Wednesday whether Medley has a lawyer yet.

Prosecutors say Medley could face a sentence of up to life in prison if he's convicted in the case.
