The case of an Allegany man accused of shooting an Olean man to death is headed to a Cattaraugus County grand jury.

33-year-old Martez Johnson is accused of shooting 27-year-old James Williams to death at a home in Olean earlier this month.

Johnson’s girlfriend testified during a hearing that she dropped him off at the scene of the murder. She says the couple later poured gasoline on a pile of clothes and burned them. She eventually led police to the gun and burned clothes.

The grand jury is expected to convene early next month.
