Two suspects held without bail in death
A state judge has ordered two construction workers suspected in the slaying of a Plaquemine teenager held without bail pending trial.
Bail was denied for 25-year-old Channing Paul Touchet and 19-year-old Nicholas Lee Gorring in the Dec. 19 drive-by shooting death of 17-year-old Jamarius Riley.
Both men were booked with principal to first-degree murder and assault by drive-by shooting.
Police say Touchet and Gorringe were in the Plaquemine area looking to buy illegal drugs at the time of the slaying.
