Two police officers in central Louisiana have been indicted by a grand jury on murder charges in the shooting death of a 6-year-old boy after they opened fire into his father’s car.
Norris Greenhouse Jr., 23, and Lt. Derrick Stafford, 32, were indicted Thursday on second-degree murder for the killing of Jeremy Mardis and attempted second-degree murder charges for injuring his father, the Acadiana Advocate reported.
The officers, who are both Marksville deputy marshals, are accused of fatally shooting Mardis and critically wounding his 25-year-old father Christopher Few after a pursuit in November. The boy was killed after being shot five times in the head and chest, the Avoyelles Parish coroner said.
