A Wayne County man accused of shooting and killing his brother-in-law on September 24, has been indicted by a local grand jury.

    Tim Reynolds was indicted for murder and tampering with physical 
evidence. The grand jury returned the indictment on Tuesday, November 
    The charges stem from the shooting death of Mark Duncan, 52, of 
Monticello. The incident occurred on Duncan Road in the Meadow Creek 
area of the county.
    According to state police, the investigation indicates that the two 
family members were involved in a disagreement that led Reynolds to 
shoot Duncan.
    The citation filed in the case indicated that Reynolds, 55, called 
to report the shooting. He told 911 operators that Duncan was lying 
in the middle of the road.
    The citation alleges that Reynolds said he shot Duncan multiple 
times, hit him over the head with a wrench and then returned home to 
report the incident and wait for law enforcement to arrive.
    In the citation, Reynolds said he and Duncan had an "ongoing 
dispute." Reynolds said that as he drove his truck to his mother-in-
law's home, he saw Duncan's truck stopped in the road. He alleges 
that Duncan began approaching his vehicle. At that time, Reynolds 
told police that he retrieved a handgun from his vehicle, aimed it at 
the subject and fired the gun. He allegedly continued to fire the gun 
until the victim fell to the ground, according to the citation.
    Reynolds told police that he then retrieved a wrench from his 
toolbox and struck Duncan several times over the head before he 
returned to his home.
    Reynolds had been lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center. A 
property bond was posted on November 27 and he has since been 
released on bond.    He will be arraigned in Wayne Circuit Court on December 16.
