LAKELAND, Fla. — A grand jury has formally charged a Florida man in a 22-count indictment that includes four first-degree murder counts in the fatal shooting of a family authorities say he attacked at random.
Court documents show the indictment was filed Tuesday in Polk County Circuit Court against Bryan Riley.
- Quadruple murder suspect tortured 11-year-old girl; suspect not remorseful
- Florida Marine veteran, who confessed to killing 4 strangers in Lakeland, may have severe PTSD
- 'Survivalist' shooter kills 4 in Lakeland, including infant, after 'God told him to,' sheriff says
Other charges included attempted murder, kidnapping, arson, burglary and animal cruelty for killing the family dog.
Riley, a 33-year-old former Marine, could ultimately face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted of the murders. Riley has not entered a plea.
Prosecutors have not announced a decision on whether to seek the death penalty.
