A Glynn County grand jury reindicted a man Tuesday accused of killing a restaurant employee in August 2009.

James Matthew Fuller was arrested Aug. 26, 2009, and charged with the Aug. 22, 2009, shooting death of Jeffrey B. Pennington, 36.

Pennington had been working that night at the Pizza Hut at 1248 Chapel Crossing Road, Glynn County, when Fuller allegedly entered the restaurant, fought with Pennington and shot him in the chest with a .22 caliber handgun.

Police found Pennington the next day, after his family became concerned when he had not come home the night before. A relative went to the restaurant, saw Pennington's car parked, and his keys inside the restaurant, he called police.

Fuller was reindicted Tuesday on one count of murder, two counts of felony murder, one count of possessing a firearm during the commission of a crime and one count of possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

It was not clear Tuesday when the district attorney's office reindicted Fuller.

Fuller had reportedly been previously convicted of entering an automobile on Oct. 17, 2008, according to the indictment.
