A Travis County grand jury indicted a College Station man Monday on a capital murder charge in the death of an Austin jeweler in March.
Authorities said Johnny Roman Leon III, 21, was hired by Nicolas Shaughnessy, 19, to kill Shaughnessy's father, Theodore Shaughnessy.
Nicolas Shaughnessy was indicted last month by a Travis County grand jury on a capital murder charge.
Nicolas Shaughnessy's wife, Jaclyn Edison, is accused of participating in the plot but has not yet been indicted. She was released on bond on a charge of solicitation to commit capital murder.
Theodore Shaughnessy, 55, was shot to death in his home around 5 a.m. March 2. His wife, Corey Shaughnessy, fired a handgun at two people but was not injured, according to Travis County authorities.
Representatives with a security company told law enforcement that the Shaughnessys' home burglary alarms had been remotely disabled from Nicolas Shaughnessy's computer in College Station just before the slaying and reactivated about an hour after Theodore Shaughnessy died. Video from the home's security cameras also had been manually deleted.
Law enforcement officials say Nicolas Shaughnessy may have been looking to receive $8 million from a combination of life insurance payouts and the sale of his parents' home and jewelry business.
Capital murder is a capital crime punishable by execution by lethal injection or life in prison.
