VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- A suspect in the slaying of an off-duty Norfolk police officer in Virginia Beach has been indicted on second-degree murder, robbery and related charges.

Media outlets report that a Virginia Beach grand jury indicted 25-year-old Kareem Hassan Turner on Monday.

The charges stem from the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Victor Decker in October 2010. Police say Decker's body was found outside his pickup truck, near a nightclub where he had attended a fundraising event.

Co-defendant Raymond Perry is scheduled to stand trial in February 2014. Perry is charged with capital murder, robbery and a weapons charge. Prosecutors have said they plan to seek the death penalty.
