WASHINGTON — A grand jury has indicted Navar Beverly, the 39-year-old Bowie, Maryland, man accused of killing his stepfather and then posting selfies with the body online.
The grand jury indicted Beverly on one count of first-degree murder last Thursday, according to the Prince George’s County state’s attorney’s office.
The pictures of Beverly with the body of 67-year-old Ronald Pinkney in the background appeared on Twitter for at least 24 hours, following the early July homicide in the garage of their Bowie home.
According to police documents, Beverly said to police, “I told you I would do it.” Pinkney died from upper-body trauma.
Beverly has a history of domestic disputes. Police said they were summoned to the home two months earlier, when Beverly choked Pinkney until a witness stopped him.
Court records show Beverly also has an extensive criminal history, including for assault, theft and drug violations. The grand jury indictment is not the first time he’s been accused of murder. Beverly was sentenced to six years in prison on a 2004 second-degree murder charge, according to state’s attorney officials.
Beverly is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 25 in Prince George’s County Circuit Court.
