Two Acadiana men are under arrest in connection to the murder of a St. Martinville teenager. Twenty-five-year-old Brandon Boutte of St. Martinville was charged with Obstruction of Justice and Second Degree Murder in the death of 19-year-old Simone Robin. St. Martin Parish Sherriff’s Spokesperson Major Ginny Higgins says Robin’s trailer was set on fire Saturday, and her body was found later that day on a levee in St. Landry.

“The Louisiana Fire Marshall also became involved when it was determined that it was an arson and then late Saturday evening we were notified that St. Laundry located a body in their parish.”

Higgins says arson investigators discovered the attempt to destroy Robin’s home was not completely successful.

“It wasn’t burned to the ground but it did suffer damage and as far as connecting it all together hopefully thought the course of the remainder of the investigation it will all be determined.”

The Major says throughout the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Robin had been killed earlier that week on Thursday, which leaves a three day period between when she was murdered, and when her home was burned down, and he body discovered at a separate location.

“She was actually killed early on Thursday morning, so there was quite of things going on for several days.”

Twenty-two-year-old Toby Boutte was also charged with one count of accessory after the fact of second-degree murder.
