Three people have been charged in a cross-burning incident at the home of an interracial couple in
north Louisiana.

Joshua James Moro is charged with conspiring to interfere with another person's civil rights.

Moro, Jeremy Matthew Moro and Sonya Marie Hart were charged with making false statements to FBI agents.

Joshua Moro and Hart were also charged with perjury.

A fourth person, Daniel Danforth, has been already convicted in the case and sentenced to four years in prison.

In October 2008, Moro and Danforth allegedly agreed to build and burn a cross near the home of their cousin and the cousin's boyfriend, who is black.
