Update On Murder-For-Hire Investigation Into Dan Markel's Death: Grand Jury To Reconvene Aug. 4 To Consider Additional Indictments

Markel 1WCTV, Grand Jury Will Reconvene in August to Review Markel Case Evidence:

A Leon County grand jury plans to reconvene later this summer to review evidence in the murder case of FSU law professor Dan Markel.

Prosecutors confirmed with WCTV that the grand jury will meet August 4.

Sigfredo Garcia and Luis Rivera were indicted last week in Markel's 2014 murder.

Tallahassee Democrat, Second Markel Suspect in Leon County Jail:

More arrests are expected in the case as investigators say they have linked the family of Markel’s ex-wife Wendi Adelson to the murder-for-hire plot.

Chiefly evidence points toward Wendy Adelson’s mother and brother, Donna and Charles Adelson.

I get the impression that prosecutors expect to make a deal with one or both of the hit men to testify against their employer(s). The evidence seems to be strong enough to make such a deal attractive to both of the guys who have been charged, and only one of them needs to cooperate.
