Man indicted for first-degree murder after November killing spree
CLINTON-The man accused of going on a murder spree last month was indicted by a grand jury for first-degree murder in the deaths of three people in East Feliciana.
Taurus Hamilton was indicted Wednesday.
Hamilton is charged with killing his ex-girlfriend, her new boyfriend and her new boyfriend's father at a home in East Feliciana Parish on Nov. 26. The victims were Laquana Whitfield, Gerald Tate and Gerald Paker.
Hamilton is also accused of murdering a man who he argued with at a convenience store in Zachary that same day. The man killed after the argument was Chris Price.
Authorities say that Hamilton fled the state with the help of his mother Belinda Folse. They were found in Alabama earlier this month and extradited back to Louisiana.
According to online records, Hamilton is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
