COLUMBIA - A grand jury filed indictments in two murder cases on Friday, with one suspect scheduled for arraignment on Monday and the second scheduled for arraignment in a week.

In the first case, Denico Crawley was indicted on murder, armed criminal action, assault, and drug possession charges. The charges stem from a shooting at the I-70/Highway 63 connector in June. Two people were shot , and one victim - 25-year-old Quenten Hurt - later died. Court documents said Crawley and the other victim, a female, had been in a relationship prior to the shooting.

Crawley was arraigned on Monday and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In the second case, Demetres Washington was indicted on murder, kidnapping, and assault charges. Police arrested Washington after she allegedly kidnapped her three children, of whom she did not have custody,and crashed while driving on I-70. One of the children died as a result of injuries from the crash.

Washington's arraignment is scheduled for August 14.
