Duane E. Taylor Jr., 31, was indicted on murder by a Montgomery County grand jury Wednesday in the death of Ronda Neal, according to court documents.

Neal died on Oct. 22, 2019, due to post traumatic tracheal stenosis due to multiple stab wounds, according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office. She was 53.

Her death has been ruled a homicide.

Taylor previously was previously charged felonious assault and retaliation in the stabbing of Neal and a second woman.

The charges stem from a December 2018 incident at Barclay Square Condominiums in Miami Twp.
