Grand Jury Indicts Derion Vence With Tampering With Corpse of Maleah Davis

A grand jury has indicted Derion Vence with tampering with a corpse in Maleah Davis’ death, the DA announced Thursday.

Vence was charged with tampering with a corpse on May 11.

So what does the indictment mean?

According to the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, an “indictment” is the “written statement of a grand jury accusing a person therein named of some act or omission which, by law, is declared to be an offense.”

No additional charges have been filed, but the Harris County District Attorney’s Office said when prosecutors receive a final autopsy report from the Medical Examiner’s Office, that evidence will be considered as part of any decision regarding possible additional charges.

“Our work continues to seek justice for Maleah,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said.
