LOVINGSTON — The man accused of abduction in the August disappearance of Nelson County teenager Alexis Murphy now faces one count of first-degree murder.

Randy Allen Taylor, 48, was arrested Aug. 11, eight days after 17-year-old Alexis vanished. He initially was charged with one count of abduction but Nelson County Commonwealth's Attorney Anthony Martin announced Monday morning that a special grand jury indicted Taylor on charges of murder, first-degree murder during the commission of abduction, and abduction with intent to defile.
