Grand jury indicts man in death of Houston-area deputy

HOUSTON (AP) -- The man accused of repeatedly shooting a Houston-area sheriff's deputy at a gas station has been indicted on a capital murder charge.
   Harris County court records show 31-year-old Shannon Miles was indicted by a grand jury Monday in the Aug. 28 killing of Deputy Darren Goforth. Miles is being held without bond at the Harris County jail.
   Prosecutors allege Miles shot Goforth 15 times as the 47-year-old deputy filled up his patrol car at a suburban Houston gas station. The indictment indicates Goforth was targeted because he was a law enforcement officer.
   Court records show Miles was twice committed to mental health facilities in the last five years and his lawyer, Anthony Osso, has sought a psychological evaluation.
   A phone message left Monday for Osso was not immediately returned.
