Two men facing murder charges, including an Au­gusta man accused of killing a physician who disappeared just before Thanks­giving, were indicted this week.

A Richmond County grand jury issued separate indictments Tuesday against Glenn V. Riggs II, 22, and Ezra T. Lay, 41.

Riggs is accused of killing Dr. Charles Mann III on Nov. 22 after luring the 60-year-old to his Dub­lin Drive home to rob him.

Lay is accused of shooting 44-year-old James Mar­shall on Oct. 13. Mar­shall was found fatally wounded at Carrie and D’Antignac streets.

Both men are scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 17 in Richmond County Superior Court.

The killing of the doctor was a premeditated murder and the thug should get the death penalty. However the lazy Augusta solicitor will probably allow him to plea bargain it to a lesser crime and the judges will probably give him "first offender" status.
