The man accused of killing a Montgomery County teacher was indicted for murder in court Thursday. A hearing is scheduled for October 20.

Police have said that Tyler Tessier, 33, killed Laura Wallen, who was four months pregnant with his child.

Allen Wolf, Tessier's public defender, said his client is innocent.

Tessier was arrested in connection to the murder the day Wallen's body was found.

Police found Wallen Sept. 13 in a freshly-dug grave on farmland in Damascus after she went missing over Labor Day weekend.

After his arrest, Tessier admitted to police that he was engaged to another woman at the same time that he was dating Wallen. The Olney woman taught history at Wilde Lake High School.

Wallen's autopsy revealed she had been shot in the back of the head.

Prosecutors believe the love triangle between Wallen, Tessier and his fiance was the probable motive behind the killing. Wallen sent a text to her best friend saying that Tessier had taken her to a field and she didn't know why.

Tessier was arrested and charged on September 13, after police say he gave them several conflicting statements.
