Melissa Huckaby Indicted in Sandra Cantu Murder

Melissa Huckaby was indicted by a grand jury on Monday on charges that she murdered her daughters 8-year-old playmate at their Tracy, Calif. mobile home park. Huckaby, 28, allegedly murdered Sandra Cantu on March 27, stuffed her body into a suitcase and dumped it into a lagoon. The former Sunday school teacher pleaded not guilty to the murder earlier this summer. Although Huckaby has made several court appearances since her arrest, the indictment – by a grand jury that secretly convened in Stockton July 20 to hear testimony in her case – means the Sunday school teacher will go straight to trial and bypass her preliminary hearing, which had been tentatively scheduled for Sept. 24.,,20298450,00.html
