A Groves man has been indicted for murder following the July 23 shooting death of a Nederland man.

Police say Cody Charles Hokett, 26, of Nederland, was shot in the chest with a shotgun in the 3100 block of Cleveland Avenue in Groves.  He died at the hospital a short while later.

John Mason Broadway, 25, was quickly identified as a person of interest and arrested.  According to 12News HD file stories, bond for Broadway was set at $3.5 million.

A Jefferson County Grand Jury Thursday handed up a 1-count indictment charging Broadway with murder.
