Suspect in kidnapping, death of Texas clerk indicted

BRYAN, Texas (AP) - A suspect in the March abduction and eventual death of a Central Texas store clerk has been indicted on murder, kidnapping and aggravated robbery counts.

A Brazos County grand jury on Thursday indicted Nathaniel Tillery of Bryan, who remains in custody.

College Station police on March 17 responded when a customer found a convenience store empty. Store surveillance video helped police determine that the clerk, Kevin Garcia, was beaten and abducted during an attempted robbery.

Investigators say Garcia was throw into the bed of his own pickup truck and driven to the Fort Worth area. Tillery was arrested after driving to a relative's house with the critically wounded Garcia still in the back of the vehicle.

Garcia died March 20 at a hospital.
