A Baltimore police officer accused of killing his wife's boyfriend has been indicted on charges of first-degree murder, said a spokeswoman for the city prosecutor's office.

Officer Rodney Price, 34, a 13-year veteran, was indicted Monday by a city grand jury, said Joyce Jefferson Daniels, the spokeswoman. Price, a resident of the 5100 block of Windermere Circle in White Marsh, Baltimore County, is being held without bail at the city Detention Center.

Price is charged in the March 15 slaying of Tristin Little Sr., 28, of the 5400 block of Cedonia Road in Northeast Baltimore, whom he suspected of having an affair with his wife, Charice Price.

Police said Price was on his way to work at the Central District about 10:30 p.m. when he confronted Little outside Little's rowhouse and shot him several times in the head and body with his semiautomatic service weapon.
