Huckaby and Cantuu (ABC)
Melissa Huckaby, the 28-year-old who is suspected of murdering 8 -year-old Sandra Cantu, was indicted today by a grand jury. Huckaby is accused of several charges, including murder with three special circumstances: kidnapping, lewd and lascivious acts on a child and rape with an instrument.

In April, Cantu's body was found in a suitcase, in a pond near the mobile home park in Stockton, California, where Huckaby and Cantu lived. According to District Attorney Thomas Testa, the case is being treated as a death penalty case for now.

The San Jose Mercury News  reported that Huckaby is being held without bail and that a trial date has not yet been set.
