Brandon Villalobos, the 15-year-old boy accused of killing 12-year-old Alex Madrid, has been indicted by a grand jury.
The grand jury charges are first degree murder or murder in the first degree and manslaughter; and tampering with evidence.
Valencia County deputies found Madrid's body last month in a field in Meadow Lake. Sheriff Louis Burkhard said Madrid died from trauma injuries.
Burkhard said Villalobos admitted to hitting Madrid in the face after an argument over Villalobos' daughter then hid his body under a mattress in the field.
