EBR District Attorney asking for death penalty in Beauregard town murder
Aramis Jackson in court this morning
BATON ROUGE, La (WGMB)--The East Baton Rouge District Attorney says he will ask for the death penalty for the man accused in the Beauregard Town murder last month.
Aramis Jackson was in district court Tuesday morning. A judge met with Jackson and appointed him a defense attorney.
Jackson is facing first degree murder charges for allegedly killing 42 year old Allie Engler and shooting her 9 year old daughter.
"At this time I anticipate that the grand jury will be presented the case, we'll ask that they return a first degree murder indictment, and at this time it's my intention to seek the death penalty," said Hillar Moore.
Jackson remains in parish prison without bond.
BRPD is still looking for the other suspect in the shooting.
