INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – One man may face additional charges in the dragging death of a woman.
According to the Marion County Prosecutors Office, a motion has been filed to amend the charges against Austin Blevins in the death of Jordan King. Prosecutors are asking charges of reckless homicide and dealing in a narcotic drug be brought against Blevins.
Documents show officers initially responded to the 1300 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street on Jan. 7 for a female who had rolled out of a moving vehicle.

At that time, it was determined that the female, later identified as Jordan King, was suffering from a skull fracture, lacerations and abrasions, documents state.
While being treated at the scene, a baggie of what was believed to be narcotics was found on the victim as well as a hotel room key card. At that time she was transported to Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital. King later died as a result of her injuries.
Documents show that during examination of the crime scene, investigators discovered evidence indicating that King’s body had been dragged by a vehicle after after a drug deal.
Blevins has also been charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.
