Adams County grand jury returns Bliefnick indictment; arraignment set for Friday afternoon

Tim-Bliefnick

QUINCY — An Adams County grand jury returned a true bill of indictment Thursday morning in the case of Tim Bliefnick, who is charged with two counts of murder in the Feb. 23 shooting death of his estranged wife, Rebecca Bliefnick.

The grand jury met for about three hours Thursday and heard evidence on 38 cases, including Bliefnick’s. True bills were returned to 38 as the foreperson of the grand jury attested to Thursday, deciding the prosecution had provided enough evidence to show probable cause.

“The grand jury was to determine whether or not a crime probably occurred and whether or not the defendant probably committed it,” Adams County Assistant State’s Attorney Josh Jones said. “The grand jury returned a true bill of indictment. That was presented to the court today, and the defendant will appear tomorrow (Friday) on that and then will be arraigned on that bill of indictment.”

Tim Bliefnick’s arraignment is set for 3 p.m. Friday before Judge Robert Adrian, who signed off on the grand jury findings Thursday.

Bliefnick was arrested March 13 at 2528 Kentucky Road, the same house where Rebecca Bliefnick was shot on Feb. 23.

Bliefnick is being held without bond in the Adams County Jail.
