For six months, Reginald Powell has sat in the Westchester County jail on theft and drug charges, while investigators built a murder case on him.

Yesterday, Powell, who served 24 years for killing a cab driver in the 1980s, was indicted on first- and second-degree murder charges in the December stabbing death of Jennifer Katz, a Mamaroneck mother who used to date Powells’ brother.

He’ll be arraigned on Monday in Westchester County Court.
