(WHAS11) - Two men face manslaughter charges for a home invasion where the third suspected burglar was killed by the homeowner.
A Shelby County grand jury indicted 23-year-old Timothy Carpenter and Joshua Fast on complicity to manslaughter charges Monday.
They'd been in custody on burglary charges since Friday.
Back in October 2008, police say Carpenter, Fast and a third man, David Fletcher, broke into a Shelbyville home.
A resident killed Fletcher in what police call self defense.
Prosecutors say Carpenter and Fast are responsible for his death because it happened as part of a crime.
