LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Jefferson County grand jury has indicted two people for murder in connection with the death of a woman in May.

According to court documents, 39-year-old Bryan Greenwell and 37-year-old Jodie Cecil are charged with the murder of 42-year-old Jennifer Cain. Both suspects are charged with murder, criminal attempted murder and first degree assault. Greenwell also faces charges of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, tampering with physical evidence and being a persistent felony offender.

The charges came after a grand jury indicted the pair on Thursday.

According to LMPD, Jennifer Cain was shot multiple times on Friday, May 13, inside her home on Shelby Street in the Shelby Park neighborhood.

Investigators say Cain’s boyfriend was also shot. He was taken to University Hospital with injuries deemed life-threatening.

"They were apparently pretty close. They had been seeing each other for several months," said Michael Cain, Jennifer Cain's father, days after the murders. "She was looking forward to me meeting him, and she said he was a nice guy."

Cain admits his daughter had battled drug problems, and that she’d been in jail. However, he says she was a good-hearted mother of two who didn’t deserve what happened to her.

"I'd like to know what happened, how it happened, why it happened," Cain said.

According to Louisville Metro Corrections' Web site, Greenwell is currently in custody. Police say he was arrested on July 8, on Cane Run Road, near Dover Avenue, after he tried to drive away from a police traffic stop. According to an arrest report, police tried to stop him, but he drove away. Police then broke off the pursuit, and attempted to secure a residence on Cane Run Road, when Greenwell drove back to the house. When he saw police, he allegedly tried to run away, leaving the car in gear.

The car hit a shed in a nearby backyard, according to police.

Greenwell was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, fleeing or evading police and criminal mischief.

As noted above, he has since been charged with murder.

It is not clear at the time of this writing if Cecil is in police custody.

As for Cain's family, Michael Cain told WDRB months ago that he wants justice to be done. 

"Whoever did this, I hope they catch them," he said. "I hope they go away for a very long time."
