ST. MARY PARISH - Three more people are in jail in connection with the murder of Willie Francis of St. Mary Parish.
Kirkland Craft, 22, is charged with second degree murder. Priscilla Francis, 41, and Autumn Alfred, 24, are charged with accessory to second degree murder.
Yesterday deputies charged a 15-year-old girl with second degree murder in the same investigation.
Deputies found Francis' car on the side of Highway 90 on Sept. 29 in the Bayou Vista area. The engine was still running, but the car had been abandoned.
The next day Francis was found dead in a ditch along Highway 182 in Berwick.
Deputies said Craft and the 15-year-old attacked Francis on Highway 182, stabbing him several times.
The sheriff's office says the motive for the murder is still under investigation.
