ST. MARTINVILLE- An inmate in the Iberia Parish Correctional Center is in even more hot water after investigators said he made false statements about killing two people.

Authorities said Jeremy Richard gave a detailed confession to the St. Martinville Sheriff's Office, admitting to killing two Hispanic men and dumping their bodies in a pit filled with water in the Cade area.

Officers lauched an investigation and an intense search, but no bodies were found.

Richard was questioned again about his confession, and investigators said he admitted he was lying and had not committed any murders.

Criminal charges are pending against Richard.
