HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Madison County grand jury handed down a two count indictment against a South Huntsville man accused of killing his wife and young son.

Investigators say Stephen Marc Stone strangled his wife, Krista, and strangled and drowned the couple's 7-year-old son Zachary.

Huntsville Police found the bodies inside the family's home on Chicamauga Trail in February 2013. Investigators say Stone took his two daughters to Leeds, near Birmingham after killing Krista and Zachary.

Police say he dropped the girls off at his parents' home, then went to the Leeds Police Department and confessed.

Madison County District Attorney Rob Broussard says the state will seek the death penalty.

A trial date has not been set.
