FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A suspended TCU student has been indicted on one count of felony murder in the death of T. Boone Pickens' grandson in January.

A Tarrant County medical examiner determined that 21-year-old Thomas Boone Pickens IV died on Jan. 29 from an accidental heroin overdose.

Brennan Rodriguez, a friend of Pickens, was indicted on one count each of felony murder, manslaughter, tampering with physical evidence, and delivering a controlled substance which resulted in a death. If convicted of felony murder, Rodriguez faces up to life in prison.

Rodriguez was arrested by Fort Worth Police in March on charges that he removed heroin, drug paraphernalia, syringes and marijuana from his apartment on Rogers Road after Pickens was taken to the hospital.
