    A Spencer County Grand Jury has decided that there is enough evidence to place Raymond Revard. Jr. on trial for the murder of his wife.

    Revard, 41, was charged in January for the alleged shooting death of his wife,  Lea Revard. When police arrived at the couple’s Normandy Station Road home, they found the 39-year-old woman laying on the kitchen floor with a gun shot wound at the back of her head. In his call to 9-1-1, Revard reportedly told dispatchers that his wife had shot herself.
