Shalabh Rastogi Indicted for Strangulation-Murder of Wife Jalina George
The father of three, who is being held without bail pending arraignment Friday on the indictment, is charged with one felony count of murder and faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in state prison if convicted.
A grand jury indictment means the case can move more quickly to trial because it removes the need for a preliminary hearing.
