A Knox County Grand Jury has indicted a man on a Felony Murder charge in the shooting death of a Knoxville man.

Authorities arrested 29-year-old Alonso Shivez Hoskins in June on a first-degree murder charge. Hoskins is suspected of shooting 57-year-old Jack McFall at a Red Roof Inn in East Knox County in May.

A family member of McFall reached out to WBIR 10News expressing concern after learning the suspected shooter had his original first-degree murder charge dismissed. Assistant District Attorney General Sean McDermott responded Wednesday saying the Knox County Grand Jury returned a presentment charging Hoskins with felony murder and especially aggravated robbery for the the death of Jack McFall. 

He is being held on a $1 million bond and a Fugitive from Justice hold on a drug charge in New Castle, Pennsylvania. 

A trial date hasn't been set yet.
