Sandra Bland, Chicago woman found dead in Waller County, TX jail cellPRAIRIE VIEW, TX — A Waller County grand jury is hearing evidence related to the Sandra Bland investigation Friday morning. It could be next week before we know if any indictments will be handed down.

The Sandra Bland story attracted international attention when earlier this year, she was detained and arrested just outside Prairie View A&M University. Bland then spent three days in the Waller County Jail before she allegedly killed herself inside her cell.

The circumstances surrounding her arrest and her time spent in jail raised enough questions that several special prosecutors have been appointed to look into the matter.
