A second suspect was arrested in the August shooting death of 21-year-old Abbeville resident Jacoby Lee.
Jamie Vallery, 30, was booked into the Vermilion Parish Correctional Center Monday on a count of accessory to second-degree murder in Lee’s homicide. Vallery’s bond is currently set at $500,000, a statement from the Abbeville Police Department said.

Lee’s vehicle veered into a utility pole after he was shot and he was pronounced dead at the scene by the Vermilion Parish Coroner’s Office, a release from the Abbeville Police Department said.
