PLAQUEMINE — Iberville Parish deputies arrested a second man Tuesday as an accessory in the slaying of a 26-year-old Plaquemine man found dead at his family’s camp near Grand River two weeks ago.
Darrell Georgetown, Jr., 58175 Plaquemine St., was booked into Iberville Parish jail Tuesday for accessory after the fact to first-degree murder and obstruction of justice in the death of Kye Boudreaux, Sheriff Brett Stassi said.
Georgetown, 26, aided Detrell Scott in fleeing the scene of the crime, Stassi said. Scott has been arrested and booked in the execution style slaying of Boudreaux.
“The crime was committed single-handedly,” Stassi said Tuesday, adding that Georgetown “had nothing to do with killing Kye. He just counseled Scott on getting rid of the evidence and helped him flee the scene.”
Boudreaux’s body was discovered May 7 by his parents at the family’s camp three hours after the victim’s boat was spotted drifting in the waters of the Intercoastal Waterway near the Jack Miller boat landing in Plaquemine.
Authorities suspect Boudreaux had taken Scott fishing with him that morning.
Sheriff’s deputies found Boudreaux’s truck and trailer partially burned in a cane field off La. 1 behind the Relax Inn motel.
Scott was arrested on May 7 after he confessed to fatally shooting and robbing Boudreaux. Scott was booked into the Iberville Parish Jail on counts of armed robbery and first-degree murder.
Stassi said previously that Scott stole the victim’s wallet, car keys, cellphone and some drugs Boudreaux was carrying. The sheriff would not disclose the type of drugs or how much drugs and money were stolen.
