Case of man who killed kidnapper before grand jury

LAFAYETTE (AP) — A Lafayette Parish grand jury will decide next week whether to charge the man who in November shot to death a kidnapper who abducted his cousin.
Marcus Arceneaux, 23, could be charged for killing Scott Thomas on Nov. 8, but it’s unlikely.
Assistant District Attorney Pat Magee said Wednesday he concur with the sheriff’s office’s assessment that the matter was a justifiable homicide.
Thomas, of Leonville in St. Landry Parish, was Bethany Arceneaux’s former boyfriend and the father of her child.
The couple was estranged when Thomas abducted Arceneaux Nov. 6 as she arrived at a daycare to pick up their son.
