Authorities completed the trip from Colorado to Lafayette Wednesday to book murder suspect Miles Guidry, who’s accused of killing his girlfriend a little more than two weeks ago in Duson before fleeing the state.
Guidry, 27, remained in jail Wednesday afternoon on a count of second-degree murder in the Nov. 29 death of 26-year-old Claire Walley. His bail is set at $500,000.
Guidry was held in the Arapahoe County jail in Centennial, Colorado — a suburb of Denver — until authorities drove him to Lafayette around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office. His next court date has not been set.
Walley was found dead the morning of Nov. 29 at her home in the 400 block of Lagneaux Road, although the circumstances surrounding the killing — including her cause of death — have not been released.
Guidry, who has a one-month old son with Walley, is due in court Feb. 18 on unrelated charges of simple criminal damage to property, illegal discharge of a firearm and aggravated flight from an officer.
He’s accused in that case of crashing into the now-demolished Lafayette Habitat for Humanity building on Johnston Street in April 2014. After the crash, he allegedly shot a .357 revolver into the air and fled from a Lafayette police officer, according to court records.
