Albany-- The man accused of killing a Dougherty County jailer has been indicted. Twenty-eight-year old Travis Smith is charged with murdering twenty-five-year old Tasha George.

She was shot outside her Temple Avenue home last Friday. Interestingly, the indictment also accuses him of battery and stalking, crimes that happened one month before Tasha George was killed. Smith and George were a couple at one time and Smith was arrested May 19th and charged with throwing George through a glass table.   

He was then let out of jail on bond and had not even been indicted when George was shot and killed June 16th. Now that he's charged with murder, prosecutors are speeding things up.

"We were wanting to move this case along as rapidly as justice will allow, and we are still looking at everything, putting everything together and making sure justice is served fully, but it is moving very rapidly and we are happy with that" said Greg Edwards Chief Asst. D.A.

Even though Albany police never reported it, Travis Smith is also accused of kidnapping and carjacking the man who was with him when he was caught in Sylvester last Friday.
