The two officers accused of fatally shooting a six-year-old child and wounding his father have been formally charged with murder.
A grand jury indicted Norris Greenhouse Jr and Derrick Stafford with second-degree murder for the events that occurred on November 3rd.
Stafford and Greenhouse were working that night as city marshals in Marksville when they fired over a dozen rounds at a car driven by Chris Few. Few was severely injured and his autistic son Jeremy Mardis was killed.
After the hearing, Few told reporters that he was pleased with the decision.
Greenhouse is currently out on bond, while Staffford remains in the Rapides Parish jail.
No word on when a trial will occur.
