COLQUITT COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) – A grand jury has not yet reached a decision against the South Georgia man accused of killing five young adults, then setting fire to the home where it happened.

This comes after prosecutors presented evidence in the case against Jeffrey Peacock, 25, during a closed-door grand jury hearing Thursday morning.

Peacock is the Moultrie man investigators with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said that they believe is behind the deaths of Jonathan Edwards, Alicia Norman, Reid Williams, Jones Pidcock and Jordan Croft. 

The five victims were found dead in May 2016, after a fire at a home on Rossman Dairy Road.

Peacock remains in the Colquitt County jail, held on a million dollar bond.

A grand jury will reconvene on the case next Wednesday around 9 a.m. according to the Colquitt County clerk of court.
