LAFAYETTE - A grand jury indicted Brandon Scott Lavergne today for the murder of missing Lafayette college student Mickey Shunick, as well as a 13-year-old murder.

According to KATC-TV in Lafayette the indictment also accused Lavergne of killing Lisa Pate, who was found dead in 1999 near Church Point.

Shunick was reported missing in May after leaving a friend's house in Lafayette. Authorities arrested Lavergne, a convicted sex offender, on July 5.

A statement from the 15th Judicial District Attorney's Office says prosecutors will ask for the death penalty in both cases.
