    NEWBERRY, S.C. A grand jury has indicted a white South Carolina man on charges he killed his black friend and dragged his body behind a truck.

    Prosecutor Jerry Peace said 19-year-old Gregory Collins was indicted Friday for murder, desecrating a body and possessing a weapon during a violent crime. Peace said it becomes a case on the active docket.

    Collins was arrested in June and accused of killing 30-year-old Anthony Hill. Authorities say Collins shot Hill, then dragged his body 11 miles behind a truck.

    The New Black Panther Party has held protests and rallies in Newberry, asking federal authorities to charge Collins with a hate crime.

    Last week, a judge decided last week not to issue a gag order in the case.
