4 arrests in 2018 killing in South Louisiana
ABBEVILLE, La. (AP) — Four arrests have been made in connection with a killing that happened more than three years ago in the city of Abbeville.
Police told news outlets in the Acadiana region Thursday that new evidence led to the arrest of one person on a second-degree murder charge in the death of Marlon Brown.
Three others face related obstruction of justice charges. And more arrests are possible.
Brown was shot and killed near his residence in Abbeville on Feb. 7, 2018. Police have not said what new evidence led to the arrests in what had been considered a cold case.
Police say Cody Guidry of Abbeville faces a second-degree murder charge. Jail records show Guidry, born in 1994, was being held in the Vermilion Parish jail with a bond set at more than $350,000. There was no information on whether he had an attorney who could comment for him.
Another man and two women face obstruction of justice charges in the case.
