The Dougherty County Grand Jury handed down an indictment Wednesday in the homicide of an Albany woman.

The grand jury indicted Quantavious Thomas on charges of felony murder,three counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, aggravated assault, and two counts of influencing a witness.

Court documents say Thomas shot at a group of men on Cedar Avenue on February 1, and instead hit and killed 67-year-old Frances Clay.

Officials said Clay was inside her home at the time, and died after a bullet went through a window and hit her.

Albany Police found Clay dead in her home five days later during a welfare check.

Also indicted in the case were Syndra Lesha Jackson and Shannon Marquiz Jordan.

Jackson was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by first offender probationer. Jordan was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

If convicted, Thomas could face life in prison without parole.
