Duke was arrested on February 23, more than 11 years after Grinstead's disappearance, in connection to the case. Arrest warrants for Duke indicate that he used his hands to kill the 30-year-old teacher inside her Ocilla home.

He was indicted on malice murder, two counts of felony murder, aggravated assault, burglary and concealing a death on April 12.

Shortly after Duke's arrest, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation searched for Grinstead's remains at a pecan orchard in Fitzgerald.

A trial date has not yet been set.
