An Orleans Parish grand jury handed down indictments against two men accused of murder on Thursday.
Levour L. Jiles, 37, was charged with second-degree murder and obstruction of justice in connection with the June 23 shooting of Arthur Hubbard, 40, in the 7th Ward. Police said they found Hubbard shot multiple times inside a Pontiac G6 near the intersection of St. Bernard Avenue and N. Roman Street.
Criminal District Court Judge Keva Landrum-Johnson set bail for Jiles, who was already in custody, at $1.5 million.
The jurors also handed down an indictment against Jeremy Leonard, 22. He is accused of second-degree murder and obstruction of justice in the April 8 killing of Terrance Pierre in the 600 block of S. Scott Street.
Police said Leonard admitted to possessing a black Infiniti G35 used in the killing. Cell phone location data also pinned him in the area at the time of the crime, authorities said.
Leonard also faces a charge of unauthorized use of a movable in connection with the Infiniti. Judge Keva Landrum-Johnson set his total bail at $1.75 million. He was in custody when charged.
