HUDSON, Fla. (AP) — A Florida grand jury has indicted a man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, her parents and her new boyfriend.

Adam Matos was indicted Tuesday in Pasco County. Florida prosecutors cannot seek the death penalty for first-degree murder without a grand jury indictment.

Police searched for Matos after four bodies were found on a hill near the house where he was staying with his former girlfriend's family. He disappeared with his 4-year-old son and was arrested Sept. 5 at a hotel in Tampa. The child was not harmed.

Matos is accused of killing his son's mother, Megan Brown; her parents, Margaret and Gregory Brown; and Nicholas Leonard, whom Megan Brown had recently begun dating. The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/1oi3XtS) reports Matos has been in jail since his arrest.
