Judge John DeMarco unsealed the indictment Thursday afternoon and charged both Dolfona Grayson and Walter Morse with felony second-degree manslaughter.

Morse was also arraigned on 14 other criminal charges, including one count of attempted murder 1st, one count of assault 2nd, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon 2nd, six counts of criminal use of drug paraphrenalia 2nd, one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell 5th, and two counts of criminal possession of a narcotic drug 3rd.
