Man convicted in death faces new charges
BATON ROUGE - A 37-year-old Baton Rouge man who served prison time after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the 1992 slaying of carjacked LSU freshman Kipp Earl Gullett is now facing a felony drug charge.
A judge reset Zebbie Berthelot's arraignment on methamphetamine charges for May 20. He told state District Judge Richard Anderson on Thursday he needed more time to hire a lawyer.
Prosecutors say Baton Rouge police arrested Berthelot on the drug charge on Dec. 31, three months after his parole supervision in the Gullett case was terminated.
