MINEOLA - A grand jury indictment was unsealed today against the man accused of killing a Nassau County police officer and an innocent driver.

Ex-con Darrel Fuller, 33, is accused of fatally shooting ESU officer Arthur Lopez last month in Bellerose Terrace.

Fuller then allegedly shot and killed Brooklyn father, Raymond Facey, during a carjacking on the Cross Island Parkway.

The grand jury indictment revealed Fuller faces three counts of murder in the first degree, one count of second-degree murder, two counts of robbery and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

Fuller was brought to court by armed guards from Rikers Island.

The courtroom was filled with members of Lopez’s ESU unit as well as family.

PBA president James Carver says there are still questions as to why Fuller was out on parole. Fuller was already on parole for attempted murder.

Fuller’s attorney entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Fuller is due back in court next month.
