SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a 22-year-old man for a series of violent attacks on South Bay women in 2009 and the 2012 abduction and murder of a 15-year-old Morgan Hill girl, Sierra LaMar.

Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen announced in a statement that Antolin Garcia-Torres was indicted Tuesday for the alleged crimes.

Garcia-Torres is set to be arraigned Thursday afternoon.

He is accused of trying to kidnap three women during a string of carjackings in 2009. The victims included an 18-year-old from Gilroy, a 46-year-old from San Martin and a 36-year-old from Morgan Hill.

In addition, the DNA of Sierra LaMar, who disappeared in March 2012 and whose body has not been found, was discovered in Garcia-Torres' car.
