Prosecutors play taped confession in murder trial
BATON ROUGE - Prosecutors at the murder trial of "Marlo" Mike Louding played two different taped confessions today which he made to police investigators.
Louding is on trial for the murder of Terry Boyd, whom he's accused of killing. He's implicated in five other murders prosecutors say are tied to Torrence Hatch known as rapper Lil Boosie.
Hatch was found not guilty for paying Louding to kill Boyd.
In two separate recordings from May 14th and 17th, 2010, Louding detailed his involvement in the murders. On tape, Louding talking about the murder of Chris "Nussie" Jackson and said their crew was paid $15,000 for the hit but he only received $1,500.
Louding previously agreed to testify against Torrence Hatch, whom prosecutors said arranged the murders. During the trial prosecutors said Louding changed his story on the stand, and invalidated the terms of his plea deal with them.
