A Cobb County Grand Jury has indicted a man and his girlfriend in the murder of his grandfather.  Authorities say 78-year-old Edward Smith was found dead in his truck back in May.  

Casey Collins, 30, and Sarah Cook, 23, were indicted Thursday on charges of malice murder, felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and concealing the death of another person.  The indictment alleges the pair strangled Smith with a belt and stabbed him inside his truck.  

Collins and Cook have been held at the Cobb County Jail without bond since they were arrested on May 7.  They could face life sentences if they are convicted.
