UPDATE: Man accused of killing Nashville clerk bound over to grand jury


A Tennessee man accused of murdering a gas station clerk in Nashville while on the run from police with a 15-year-old girl had his case bound over to a grand jury Thursday.

Daniel Clark, 28, is charged in the death of John Stevens, 58, earlier this month. Trinity Quinn is also charged in the murder and has a hearing set for September to determine if she will be tried as an adult.

Clark is accused of running of with the girl from Dayton, TN, triggering an Amber Alert.

Surveillance video from a nearby business appeared to show Clark and Quinn trying to unsuccessfully steal an SUV after the shooting.

Police said Clark shot the clerk several times with a semi-automatic pistol.

Quinn went from an Amber Alert victim to a suspect after police said surveillance video showed she had plenty of time to get away but chose to follow Clark instead.

The District Attorney's office wants to try Quinn as an adult.

If tried as an adult, Quinn would not be eligible for the death sentence because of her age, but she could get life in prison.

If tried as a juvenile, Quinn would not stay in detention past her 19th birthday.
