A Baton Rouge man was indicted Thursday in the Oct. 13 shooting death of a 21-year-old man on Madison Avenue near North Foster Drive.

An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged Hardy Allen, 22, 3815 Eaton St., with second-degree murder in the slaying of Calvin Chrisentary.

Allen faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison if convicted as charged.

The case has been assigned to state District Judge Lou Daniel.

A day after Allen was arrested, Baton Rouge police arrested three of his relatives and accused them of attempting to intimidate a witness in the case.

The relatives — Natasha Tate, Donte Tate and Danny Allen — parked outside the house of a “key witness” and also called the witness on the phone and intimidated her, Cpl. Don Coppola has said.
