The man charged with shooting and killing a Catholic priest two weeks ago was formally charged in Phoenix today. A grand jury indicted ex-convict Gary Michael Moran with murder and several other charges stemming from the shooting on June 11th.
Father Kenneth Walker, who was laid to rest a week ago today in St. Mary’s, was killed in the shooting and another priest was wounded. Moran will be arraigned on the charges next Thursday.
Arizona does have the death penalty; prosecutors have not said whether they will seek it.
