A Hartford man has been indicted on federal charges that he killed a man to keep him from sharing information with authorities about drug trafficking.

The grand jury indictment of 22-year-old Keronn Miller alleges he and others killed Ian Francis to keep him from attending a federal proceeding.

Francis was shot multiple times while sitting in his vehicle in Hartford on Dec. 21, 2010.

Miller has been in custody since his arrest on a federal warrant in November. He is charged with witness tampering murder and conspiracy to commit witness tampering murder and faces a mandatory life prison term or possible death penalty if convicted.

The indictment by the grand jury in Hartford was announced by federal prosecutors, the FBI and Hartford police.
