DENVER (AP) -- Newly released court documents reveal that a 1999 grand jury indicted John Ramsey and Patsy Ramsey for child abuse resulting in death and being an accessory to a crime, including murder.

However, the indictments released Friday did not say who killed their 6-year-old daughter JonBenet.

The indictment, which the prosecutor refused to prosecute, said the crimes occurred between Dec. 25 and Dec. 26, the day the 6-year-old beauty queen's body was found.

The document alleges both parents intended to delay or prevent the arrest of the alleged killer.
