Indictment: UF student poisoned, suffocated

GAINESVILLE (AP) -

A grand jury indictment says a University of Florida student who was missing for three weeks was poisoned and suffocated before his body was dumped in woods.
 
The indictment released Thursday says 18-year-old college freshman Christian Aguilar was sedated with a chemical compound and then suffocated. The document does not specify the type of chemical used.
 
Aguilar went missing Sept. 20. The Miami native's body wasn't found until three weeks later by hunters in a rural Levy County location.
 
Charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping is Aguilar's former friend, 18-year-old Pedro Bravo. Police say Bravo previously told them he beat Aguilar and left him alive in a parking. Bravo has pleaded not guilty.
 
 Aguilar would have turned 19 years old on Friday if he lived.
