Man ordered to return to jail after premature order release
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man accused in a fatal shooting in Louisiana has returned to jail after a magistrate commissioner prematurely ordered his release.
Jail records show that 21-year-old Donnell Brown III was booked into the Orleans Justice Center on Monday. He was in jail 62 days when Magistrate Commissioner Jonathan Friedman ordered his release Aug. 2.
NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports that Brown was arrested June 1 on second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder charges. He is accused in the shooting death of 35-year-old Herbert Foster and a 15-year-old girl wounded.
Last week, district attorney Leon Cannizzaro's office said prosecutors have 120 days from the date of arrest to secure a grand jury indictment, which in Brown's case is Sept. 29.
