A Clay County District Court grand jury has indicted Clarence Michael Burcham on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Sharon Stafford 16 years ago.

Clay County Attorney Brian Melton said he is aware of only one penalty for someone convicted of first-degree murder in Minnesota: life in prison.

The grand jury met in secret for about 2½ days before handing down the indictment late Wednesday afternoon.
