INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A teenager has been charged with murder after allegedly shooting a Lyft driver in the head and stealing his SUV in Indianapolis last month.  

The Indianapolis Star reports that 17-year-old Jahion Jarrett of Greenwood was charged as an adult in the slaying of 45-year-old Hurts Presendieu, whose body was found in a storage barn on the property of a Indianapolis church.
