The case of the man being held on Duluth Police warrants arising from a March 2013 death will soon go to the Gwinnett grand jury, according to a spokesperson for prosecutors.

Robert Craig Sandman has been held without bond in the Gwinnett Detention Center since November, after being extradited from New Mexico.

Sandman is being held on warrants that arise from the death of Donald Singer, who was a Monteath Pass resident. The warrants are for theft by taking and violation of probation, both felonies.

Duluth Police investigators have interviewed Sandman since he was brought back to Gwinnett, although they have declined to discuss the case.

A Gwinnett District Attorney spokesperson said Thursday (Dec. 12) that prosecutors could present any information they might find in an investigation. In a grand jury hearing, the suspect's attorney is not present. The grand jury hearing is scheduled for Dec. 18.

Singer's body was found in the garage of his residence. No cause of death was determined by an autopsy.

During the Duluth Police investigation, personal items belonging to Singer, including a vehicle, were missing and appeared to have been taken, police said.

Sandman originally was captured in Sandoval County, N.M., in April, but he was ordered released in July after an apparent administrative error.

Singer's body was found wrapped in a blanket in the garage of his home by his daughter Jessica Black, who called 911.
