FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A North Texas grand jury has indicted a man for felony murder in the fatal heroin overdose of the grandson of Texas billionaire T. Boone Pickens.
A spokeswoman for Tarrant County prosecutors says Brennan Trainor Rodriguez was also indicted for manslaughter, tampering with evidence and delivering a controlled substance in the Jan. 29 death of 21-year-old Ty Pickens.
The indictment accuses Rodriguez of injecting heroin into Pickens' body, causing his death. Rodriguez is also accused of hiding drugs and a syringe from law enforcement after Pickens' death.
Rodriguez's attorney, Bruce Ashworth, declined to comment.
Family spokesman Jay Rosser said the family was grateful that the grand jury "has taken the first step in holding Brennan Rodriguez responsible" for Pickens' death.
