A Barnstable, Massachusetts, grand jury Wednesday indicted the man accused of shooting and killing a Coast Guard petty officer, shooting her wife and a police officer in Bourne, Massachusetts, on February 5th of this year. 

Adrian T. Loya was arrested at the scene for killing Petty Officer Lisa Trubnikova, age 31, and seriously injuring her wife, 30-year-old Petty Officer Anna Trubnikova. 

The accused, also an active duty Coast Guardsman, and the two women had previously been stationed at Coast Guard Base Kodiak, where Trubnikova family members say Loya became obsessed with Lisa Trubnikova.

According to Cape News in Falmouth, Massachusetts, Loya was indicted on charges of murder, armed assault with intent to murder, aggravated assault and battery, armed home invasion, assault and battery on a police officer, illegal possession of a large capacity firearm magazine and six other felonies.

During the police response to the incident, Bourne Police Officer Jared MacDonald, a former Coast Guardsman himself, was shot and seriously wounded.

Loya, who is being held without bail, will be arraigned in Barnstable Superior Court.
