White County grand jury returns indictments in August murder case

By Dean Dyer WRWH Radio

A Cleveland man has been indicted by a White County grand jury on malice murder and felony murder charges in connection with the death of 66-year-old Wayne Alexander of Cleveland on Aug. 10.

The grand jury, meeting on Monday, returned the true bill of indictment against Fredrick William Sauder, 27.

In addition to the murder-related charges, Sauder also was indicted on charges of aggravated assault, first-degree burglary, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  

White County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Bob Ingram said at the time Sauder was arrested on Aug. 17 that Alexander was "shot and killed in his residence on Sam Craven Road."

Another White County man, Justin Edward Davis, 28, was indicted by the grand jury in connection with the  same incident. Davis was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, first-degree burglary and possession of a firearm by convicted felon. The grand jury this week returned  indictments on all those charges.
