A Brazos County grand jury handed up indictments to more than 60 people Thursday.
Included on that list was a Houston resident accused of driving drunk and killing a woman.

Courtney Alexander, 29, was arrested in October after police say she lost control of her car on Highway Six between Highway 40 and Texas World Speedway, causing it to flip.

According to police reports, a passenger, Heather Sellers of Houston, was ejected and later died at the College Station Medical Center.
Another passenger was taken to the Med for overnight observation and later released.

Alexander has been indicted on one count of intoxication vehicular manslaughter.

Also indicted was Juan Martinez on one count of murder.
Police say the 35-year-old fled to Mexico following the 2002 shooting of Gerardo Silva in Bryan.

A year later, police say, he was arrested for the murder by Mexican authorities, but red tape delayed his return.

In November, after a three-year extradition process, Bryan police say they took custody of Martinez.

19-year-old Byron Cunningham was also indicted Thursday on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of aggravated robbery and one count of assault of a public servant.

The Bryan man is accused of opening fire in December at the Max Express Shell station on Wellborn Road.

During the spree, police say College Station resident Amanda Holland was shot in the arm.
Holland was not seriously injured.

Police say Cunningham had initially asked Holland for a ride at the gas station and then followed her into the store and then to her car.

According to police reports, that's when she became suspicious and called her husband and police for help.

Then, police say, Cunningham went back into the store, showed the store clerk his gun and stole a pair gloves, and then walked outside and opened fire.

Marcos Earl Ray, 19, was also indicted on one count of aggravated robbery.

According to court documents, in December Ray turned himself over to the Brazos County Sheriff's Office.

Police said they were interested in Ray because of his possible involvement in a robbery at the Handi Stop on North Texas back on October 19th.
