WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A teenager charged with hitting and killing a Camp Lejeune marine with his car has been indicted on murder charges and will be in court Monday morning in room 403 of the New Hanover County Courthouse.

A New Hanover County grand jury indicted 19-year-old Jackson Davies, an ECU Student from Apex, with second-degree murder and felony death by motor vehicle, according to WITN.

Davies was originally charged with felony death by motor vehicle and impaired driving in the death of 22-year-old Cory Reese in February.

Police say Reese was on Rose Avenue in Wilmington, near the campus of UNC Wilmington, when Davies hit Reese with his vehicle.

The car hit a tree and a utility pole, and as a result, Davies was hospitalized at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. He was charged after being released from the hospital and was booked under a $50,000 bond.

Police say he posted bond and was released.

Authorities said in court that an altercation between the two had taken place at a party prior to the incident.
