A grand jury has indicted grocery store heir Russell T. Lund Jr. on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his estranged wife and her boyfriend.

The Hennepin County indictment Thursday accused the Minnetonka millionaire of shooting Barbara Lund and former Iowa legislator E. Kevin Kelly on Aug. 5. His first court appearance to answer the charges was not immediately scheduled.

Lund, whose father started Lunds, a chain of upscale grocery stores in the Twin Cities area, was charged with two counts of murder on Aug. 29. Authorities said Mrs. Lund and Kelly were shot after Lund called his wife and invited her over to discuss a divorce settlement.
