A grand jury has indicted two people eight months after a 5-year-old drowned at an outing.

The Executive Director of Camp Cricket Terri Ann Clark has been charged with reckless conduct and involuntary manslaughter. Maribeth Wansley, the overseer of the Cochran Mill Nature Center, has been charged with operating an early child facility without a license.

Benjamin 'Kamau' Hosch III drowned July 2017 while attending Camp Cricket, which is a day camp held at Cochran Mill Nature Center near Atlanta.

According to law officials, the children were taken for lunch near the waterfall and rock ledge, and they were allowed -- without parental consent -- to slide on the waterfall and swim.

Kamau couldn't swim, and he was missing for up to 45 minutes.

The lawyer representing the camp where the child drowned is expected to talk about the recent indictment on Wednesday.
