More charges have been filed against a man accused in the death of a Richmond woman whose body was found on a local bike trail, police said Thursday.

Richmond police initially charged Jamar Paxton Jr., 18, of Mechanicsville with robbery and a gun charge in the death of Dominique Danzy, 22, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. On Wednesday, Paxton was served with indictments for first-degree murder and a second gun charge.

On May 13, officers responded to the 4300 block of Williamsburg Avenue where they found Danzy lying on the dirt bicycle paths near Stone Brewing and Gillies Creek Park in the East End of Richmond. Authorities say she had been shot and died on the scene.
