An Abbeville man already jailed on a first-degree murder charge faces a second count after a grand jury indicted him in a second killing.
A Vermilion Parish grand jury on Monday handed down a first-degree murder indictment against Derrick “Deebo” Mitchell, 24, in the Dec. 7, 2012, shooting death of Kyle Trahan, the 15th Judicial District Attorney’s Office said.
The killing happened days before the Dec. 20, 2012, shooting death of Darrell Broussard Jr., in which Mitchell was indicted earlier this year.
Mitchell was apprehended in California in September some six months after he was mistakenly released from a Tensas Parish prison. He’s since been held at the Vermilion Parish jail without bond and could face the death penalty if convicted in either case.
