A building contractor has been charged with murder for his part in a deadly building collapse that took the lives of six people.  The Grand Jury Presentment can be viewed here.  Indictment materials are often unavailable to the public and defense attorneys until sixty days before trial.

Griffin T. Campbell was indicted on six counts of third degree murder, six counts of involuntary manslaughter and thirteen counts of recklessly endangering another person.

The building collapse occurred on June 5, 2013.  A 4-story brick wall crashed down on top the Salvation Army Thrift Store located at 22nd and Market Street.  Shoppers and workers were buried in the debris.  According to the presentment, an architect warned Campbell that the wall was unstable and could collapse.

Mr. Campbell may face years, and potentially the rest of his lifetime in prison, if convicted.
