    A Connecticut man has been indicted on a murder charge in a double shooting in Providence last year.

    The Providence Journal reports that Jason King, of New Haven, is accused of killing Luis Aquino and shooting Jonathan Garcia outside a bar on Nov. 4.

    Providence police say the 20-year-old King and another New Haven man, Lloyd Streater, met with the two Providence men that night. Police say a drug deal ended with King opening fire on Aquino and Garcia.

    A Providence County grand jury charged King on Friday with murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and discharging a firearm while committing a crime of violence.

    It was not known Sunday if he's represented by a lawyer.

    Streater is held without bail on murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and other charges.
