Man indicted in double murder of Denham Springs couple
DENHAM SPRINGS - A grand jury has formally charged Michael T. Collins with two counts of first-degree murder in the 2018 murder of a Livingston Parish couple.

Days after the couple was found dead, Collins was captured in Scottsville, Kentucky and brought back to Louisiana.
Police charged him with first-degree murder, automobile theft, and simple burglary.
