The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Aaron Orlando Richards of Kaplan and Marcus Joseph Feast in the March 29 killing of Timothy Falgout.
Richards allegedly stabbed and killed Falgout during a robbery attempt while Falgout was delivering a pizza to a home in the 300 block of Rue Canard, authorities have said.
The grand jury indicted Richards on a charge of first-degree murder.
Feast is accused of driving Richards to the scene of the killing. The grand jury indicted Feast on a charge of principal to first-degree murder.
Richard was also indicted on one count each of attempted first-degree murder and purse snatching in two separate and unrelated incidents in March, according to the indictment.
Feast faces a charge of unauthorized use of an access card in a March 30 incident, according to his indictment.
Richards was arrested Aug. 5 at the Lafayette Parish Courthouse, where he was scheduled for a court appearance in a separate and unrelated case.
DNA taken from a folding knife left at the scene linked Richards to the killing, authorities have said.
Investigators linked Feast to the crime after they spotted his vehicle in video surveillance taken from a residence near the crime scene, authorities said.
The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office was also involved in the September 2009 arrest of Joseph Johnfore, the former Duson police chief.
Johnfore was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on two counts of malfeasance in office and one count each of felony theft and misdemeanor theft.
The Sheriff’s Office began investigating Johnfore after an audit reported $5,100 in missing traffic fines from the town.
The audit found no record of payment for $3,500 in tickets issued by Duson police in 2008 and $1,600 in 2009.
Johnfore resigned in June 2009, citing Mayor Susie Lagneaux’s lack of trust in him as the reason.
The grand jury returned a no true bill on each of the four counts against Johnfore.
