A grand jury in Louisiana has indicted the man accused of killing former Rider running back Joe McKnight during a road rage dispute in December.
Jefferson-Parish District Attorney Paul Connick says 55 year old Ronald Gasser is charged with second degree murder which carries a mandatory life sentence if convicted.
Gasser's bond has also been increased by a judge from 500-thousand dollars to 750-thousand.
Authorities have said both McKnight and Gasser were driving erratically and yelling at each other on December 1 before they stopped and McKnight walked to Gasser’s vehicle. They said when the 28-year-old McKnight confronted Gasser, who was still seated in his car, Gasser pulled out a gun and shot McKnight three times.
