A grand jury in Massachusetts has indicted a Coast Guard man accused of shooting and killing a Coast Guard woman and injuring her wife and a police officer back in February. The shooter and his two female victims had previously been stationed in Kodiak.

The grand jury in Barnstable County on Wednesday indicted 31-year-old Adrian Loya of Virginia on 30 counts in connection with the shooting death of 31-year-old Lisa Trubnikova on Feb. 5.

Trubnikova's spouse, 30-year-old Anna Trubnikova, was wounded in the shooting in their residence in Monument Beach, Massachusetts, about an hour’s drive south of Boston. Loya also fired on police officer Jared MacDonald who responded to the early morning shooting.

Loya and the Trubnikovas had been stationed at Coast Guard Base Kodiak, where, according to family members of the Trubnikovas, Loya became obsessed with Lisa Trubnikova. Loya’s attorney, Drew Segadelli, has been quoted as saying that Loya had “some relationship” with at least one of the women.

The Cape Cod Times said Loya, an information technology specialist stationed in Portsmouth, Virginia, since June 2013, was stationed in Juneau in July 2011 before being transferred to Kodiak in April 2012. It said the Trubnikovas moved to the Cape from Kodiak about a year before the shooting.

The grand jury indicted Loya on 30 counts, including murder, armed assault to murder, aggravated assault and battery, armed home invasion, assault and battery on a police officer and possession of a large-capacity firearm magazine.

Loya has been held without bail since his arrest on Feb. 5.

“This is the culmination of months of work by many police agencies and the U.S. Coast Guard and the District Attorney's Office,” Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe said in a news release. “This important stage of a tragic case has been completed.”

MacDonald, the police officer, who was shot in the back during the shooting, lay bleeding in the cold for 15 minutes before he could be helped. He was wearing a bulletproof vest but was struck below it, police said.

MacDonald led the way at the Bourne, Massachusetts, Fourth of July Parade on Saturday.
