ALPINE, TX (KWES) -

It was a tense day in Alpine as many waited for grand jury proceedings to wrap up.

Two indictments came out of the evidence presented in connection to the case of Zuzu Verk.

Robert Fabian is indicted on murder and tampering with evidence for hiding a corpse.

Court documents say two questions still remain: how did Fabian kill Zuzu and why Fabian's total bond sits at $925,000.

The alpine community says the indictments are a sense of relief for most.

"It's about time to get justice for her. She was a sweet person and a people person and she loved doing what she liked, you know, and he took that all away from her," said Glenda Westerman, friend of the Verk family and Alpine resident. 

Many have asked about the second suspect in the case, Chris Estrada.

He still sits in the Presidio County Jail on a $500,000 bond charged with tampering with evidence.

No word yet if he will face more charges or indictments.
