Law & Order: SVU actor Isaiah Stokes was indicted for murder by a grand jury in Queens, N.Y. on Friday, July 16, the Queens District Attorney’s Office confirmed in a press release shared with E! News.

The 41-year-old star is accused of fatally shooting a man, identified as Tyrone Jones, who sat in a parked car in Jamaica, Queens in February.
