Synagogue suspect indicted on 44 counts
The suspect in the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre has been indicted by a federal grand jury.
The indictment, which was expected, was announced Wednesday. It charges Robert Bowers with 44 counts, including hate crimes. Federal prosecutors have previously indicated they plan to seek the death penalty.
U.S. Attorney Scott Brady says “today begins the process of seeking justice for the victims of these hateful acts.”
