The Ouachita Parish district attorney says a grand jury on Monday will consider the case of a teenager charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the slaying of his parents.

The 15-year-old boy was arrested in class Friday at West Ouachita High School.

District Attorney Jerry Jones tells the Monroe News-Star that the grand jury may be asked to decide is whether the teenager will be tried as an adult.

Sheriff's Maj. Jason Pleasant says 41-year-old Tammy Fletcher and her husband, 51-year-old Johnny Fletcher, were found dead in their home early Friday. Deputy Meghan Russell says both were killed by a shotgun.

An employee answering the phone Sunday at the Ouachita Parish sheriff's office said she didn't know whether the teenager has an attorney.
