In September, a deadly hunting accident was reported in Grundy County and an investigation began.
44-year-old Chad Killian was found with a gunshot wound to his upper body. Killian was taken to the hospital and later died from his injuries.
45-year-old Robin Smartt, Jr told Grundy County deputies Killian was shot during a hunting accident.
A grand jury has now indicted Smartt in connection with the fatal shooting of Killian.
The case was presented by Tennessee Bureau of Investigation investigators.
Smartt was indicted on a count of reckless homicide and possession of a firearm during a dangerous crime. A bond will be set in open court on Nov. 20.
