GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) - A grand jury in Texas has indicted an 18-year-old on a capital murder charge in the killing of actor Eddie Hassell.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that D’Jon Antone was indicted Wednesday. He was arrested in November in the shooting death of Hassell during a carjacking. According to an arrest warrant affidavit, surveillance video and witness interviews show Hassell was staying with a woman at an apartment in Grand Prairie.

Detectives determined Hassell had left the apartment to go to the woman’s car when Antone shot Hassell and stole the car.

Hassell was known for his roles in the NBC show “Surface” and the 2010 film “The Kids Are All Right.”
