A Thibodaux man has been indicted on murder charges - a month and a half after a fatal shooting in Terrebonne Parish.
A Terrebonne grand jury has charged Kamron Jacquot, 20, with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Eric Thibodaux, 18, of Larose.
The grand jury also has indicted Jacquot with attempted first-degree murder for allegedly shooting another man on the scene.
A grand jury indictment is not a determination of guilt, nor innocence. It is a step which moves a case to trial. To be indicted, prosecutors showed the jury that there is enough evidence in the case to warrant the continuation of the case.
Authorities were called on New Year's Eve to the 200 block of Jolie Oaks Boulevard after reports of shots having been fired.
Authorities say they learned that Jacquot was in a fight with Thibodaux earlier in the night at a New Year's Eve party. When Thibodaux and a friend were leaving the party, Jacquot then pulled out a gun, and allegedly shot the victims from behind, killing Thibodaux and seriously wounding the other man, identified as Matthew Badeaux.
Jacquot then fled the scene.
Jacquot was arrested on New Year's Day, and he is held without bail.
The suspect, if convicted, will face a mandatory life sentence in the incident.
