VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A Valdosta man suspected of killing a store clerk last July has been indicted for that cold-blooded crime.

A grand jury indicted 21-year-old Daymon Heard for malice murder, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Investigators say he walked into the Triangle Foods on Highway 41 on July 30th and immediately fired four shots at 48-year-old Jay Patel.

Investigators also say Heard confessed to the crime and claimed he was high on cocaine at the the time.

He was arrested in Jacksonville, Florida shortly after the murder and remains in the Lowndes County Jail.
