The younger brother of the man accused in last September’s home-invasion slaying in Beauregard Town was indicted Wednesday in the killing of a woman and wounding of her companion while the two were walking to a store in May.
An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged Carrington Jackson, 19, with one count each of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.
Jackson, 1938 Arizona St., is accused of fatally shooting Danielle Camel, 24, and wounding her companion on May 14 as Camel walked with two people to a grocery store near the 100 block of West Polk Street around 12:40 a.m.
One of Camel’s companions was not injured in the shootings.
Jackson is the younger brother of Aramis Jackson, 21, the man accused in the Sept. 24 home-invasion slaying of Alexandra Engler, 42, and the wounding of her 9-year-old daughter, Ariana, in their Beauregard Town home.
Aramis Jackson is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in those shootings. Carrington Jackson’s case has been assigned to state District Judge Tony Marabella, who also presides over Aramis Jackson’s case.
A second-degree murder conviction carries an automatic sentence of life in prison. First-degree murder is punishable by either death by lethal injection or life in prison.
