LIVINGSTON — District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux reports that 40-year-old Michael A. Meade, of Denham Springs, was found guilty of second-degree murder and home invasion.

On Dec. 31, 2018, Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office was alerted to shots fired at 34987 Lotts Lane, Denham Springs. After arriving on the scene, officers observed Acadian Ambulance attending to a male victim, later identified as Jeremy Campbell, who was being treated for multiple gunshot wounds. Crime scene investigators observed evidence of a forced entry and multiple shell casings located within the mobile home. Eyewitnesses identified Meade as the suspect who used force to enter the residence and fired a weapon prior to fleeing the scene.

According to witness testimony, Meade and his wife had been estranged since 2013. On Dec. 30, 2018, the two had a discussion via text which became increasingly aggressive evolving into threats. In the early morning of Dec. 31, 2018, the defendant traveled from LaPlace to a secondary location in Gonzales, before arriving at his estranged wife’s residence within Livingston Parish. After kicking in the residence door, Meade opened fire inside the dwelling resulting in life threatening injuries sustained by Campbell. Campbell later succumbed to these injuries.

After the incident, Meade traveled to the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office and admitted to his involvement in Campbell’s death. Meade was apprehended into the Livingston Parish Jail.

The autopsy report confirmed Campbell’s cause of death was due to multiple gunshot wounds sustained to the cheek and left shoulder.

The jury of five women and seven men deliberated for approximately 30 minutes before returning unanimous verdicts on both counts.

Meade is scheduled for sentencing on June 21.
