A man and a woman have been indicted on murder and other charges in the killing of a Clark Atlanta University student, prosecutors said.

The indictment against Barron Brantley, 21, and Jordyn Jones, 22, was announced Friday.

Alexis Crawford was strangled, placed in a plastic bin and dumped at a park, police said. Crawford and Jones were roommates, and had a fight inside their apartment and Jones' boyfriend, Brantley, got involved, court records show. Brantley strangled Crawford, and then the couple put her body into the bin and left her in a park outside Atlanta, police said.

Lawyers for Brantley and Jones did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Friday.
