A grand jury has declined to indict a 37-year-old Lafayette man accused in the Valentine's Day stabbing death of a man in a Scott nightclub.

The grand jury returned a no true bill Wednesday on Christopher James Marmottin, who faced one count of manslaughter in Nathan Lejeune's death.

Scott Police said Marmottin stabbed Lejune twice in the chest with a pocket knife during a fight at Cowboys nightclub.

Marmottin's attorney says the grand jury found that his client was acting in self-defense.
