A grand jury indicted 32-year-old Cornelius Smith on first-degree murder and other charges in Dolph’s death, the Shelby County, Tennessee, District Attorney’s Office said.

Smith was arrested last month on an auto-theft warrant involving the vehicle used in Dolph’s killing.

He’s being held without bond. Separately, the U.S. Marshals Service said 23-year-old Justin Johnson was arrested Tuesday, after a murder warrant was issued for him earlier this month.

Dolph was gunned down in a daylight ambush at a popular Memphis cookie shop on Nov. 17.
