The man accused of killing Tierra Bryant, who went missing in 2015, has been indicted on six charges in connection with her death.

Rashan Hunt, 36, has been charged with the following:

  • One count voluntary manslaughter
  • One count felonious assault
  • One count tampering with evidence
  • One count gross abuse of a corpse
  • Two counts of obstructing official business

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O'Malley announced the charges Wednesday afternoon.

"Unfortunately, another teen in our community has lost their life," said O'Malley. "My condolences go out to the family of Tierra Bryant. It is my hope that at some point in the near future her remains are recovered so that she may receive a proper burial and to assist this family in the healing process."

Bryant was last seen alive in Middleburg Heights in March of 2015.
