RALEIGH, N.C. — A grand jury indicted a Durham pastor Tuesday for the murder of a North Carolina Central University student earlier this year.

Robert Reaves is charged with killing Latrese Curtis, 21.

Curtis' body was discovered along Interstate 540 in Wake County late January. An autopsy showed she had been stabbed.

Reaves has been in trouble with the law before. He was accused of sex crimes in South Carolina and New York.
