DALLAS — A grand jury has indicted a Dallas high school basketball player for manslaughter in the death of a rival player.

Prosecutors said 19-year-old Johnathan Turner beat Troy Causey to death in March.

Then questions surfaced about where the two players lived.

That led to a News 8 investigation and a school district probe that uncovered a recruiting scandal.

Fifteen Dallas Independent School District employees were fired as a result.
