Tidwell is accused in the July 5 death of his half-sister Mackenna Kronenberger, a 14-year-old girl who had just finished her freshman year at Carroll High School. Kronenberger was killed when a bullet fired in front of her Morse Avenue house struck her while she was inside. Prosecutors said the shooting happened during an argument between Tidwell and Dylan Angel, 18.

A grand jury declined to indict Angel, but approved multiple charges against Tidwell, including murder, tampering with evidence, discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises; and having weapons under disability for a prior offense of violence. He is being held on $1 million bond in the Montgomery County Jail.

His trial is set to begin Dec. 11.
