The Marshall County grand jury indicted two men on murder charges after a Thursday session.

The grand jury indicted Cory Burkeen, 24, Gilbertsville, with the charge of wanton murder. Commonwealth Attorney Mark Blankenship said if convicted, Burkeen could face 20 years to life in prison. As a violent offense, Burkeen would have to serve 85 percent of his time before becoming eligible for parole.

The grand jury also indicted him for being a persistent felony offender. Blankenship said the indictment stems from a previous felony conviction. If found guilty, a jury could sentence him to an additional five years.

Related to the Memorial Day accident that investigators believe ultimately resulted in the death of Landon Lovett, 19, and injured three others, another grand jury indicted Burkeen for two counts of assault and two counts of wanton endangerment. He faces charges of burglary in an unrelated case.

The grand jury also indicted Billy Don Greer on murder charges for the Jan. 3 shooting death of Darryl Domingue, 32, Wickliffe. Blankenship said investigators believe Greer, 55, Calvert City, shot Domingue twice after a fight. If convicted, he could face 20 years to life in prison.
