BATON ROUGE - Prosecutors and defense attorneys rested their respective cases this afternoon in the murder trial of "Marlo" Mike Louding, who's accused of killing six people.

Louding is accused of killing Terry Boyd in October 2009 at the direction of Torrence Hatch, also known as the rapper Lil Boosie.

Prosecutors wrapped up their case around 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Defense attorneys rested without calling any witnesses.

Wednesday night, the getaway driver in the murder for hire plot, Adrian Pittman, testified against Louding for a lesser sentence. Pittman pleaded guilty to manslaughter in November for his involvement in Boyd's murder.

Louding is also accused of killing Darryl "Bleek" Milton and Charles "Nokie" Matthews, Chris "Nussie" Jackson, Marcus Thomas and Michael Smith over a 14 month span between February 2009 through April 2010.

News 2's Michael Shingleton will have the latest in the case tonight at 6 p.m.
