MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A Madison County grand jury indicted a pair of twins on murder charges.

Jovontai and Jovonta Dickerson are charged in the shooting death of Jarrod Lockett. It happened at Madison Garden Apartments in Huntsville in December 2012.

Investigators said Lockett was behind a fake prostitution website. They said he posed as a female on Facebook to get girls to work for him.

Police said Jovonta was one of the girls, and got angry when she didn't get paid. Investigators said she and her brother confronted Lockett and shot him.

A trial date for the twins has not been set.
