Man charged in Trinity Gay's death waives case to grand jury

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) One of four people charged in connection with the shooting death of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's 15-year-old daughter has allowed his case to be moved to a grand jury for review.

Multiple news outlets report 21-year-old Dvonta Middlebrooks waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday and let the grand jury consider the charges.

Middlebrooks is charged with wanton endangerment in the death of Trinity Gay, who was shot Oct. 16 outside a Lexington restaurant after witnesses told police that gunfire was exchanged between two vehicles. Police say Trinity Gay wasn't in either car involved in the shooting.

Thirty-eight-year-old Chazerae Taylor; his 19-year-old son, D'Markeo Taylor; and 20-year-old Lamonte A. Williams also face the same charge.

Middlebrooks also is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
