Two Thibodaux men indicted in deadly Schriever shooting

·1 min read

Two Thibodaux men have been indicted in connection with the deadly shooting of a Schriever resident.

A Terrebonne Parish grand jury found enough evidence last week to charge Kobe Wilson, 21, with second-degree murder. The grand jury also indicted 23-year-old Leon Cammack Jr. with principal to second-degree murder.

An indictment does not presume guilt or innocence but indicates the grand jury found prosecutors presented enough evidence to warrant a trial on the charge.

Both men appeared in court Nov. 19 and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The indictments resulted from a shooting Aug. 3 that killed 34-year-old Jeremiah Williams.

Authorities found Williams dead around 3 a.m. Aug. 4 in the driver’s seat of a car that struck a home on Johnson Ridge Lane. The Sheriff’s Office said security video was used to identify at least two vehicles involved in the shooting.

Terrebonne sheriff's detectives found Wilson on Aug. 6 on Belle Isle Drive Thibodaux and took him into custody without incident, authorities said. Thibodaux Police and the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrest.

Wilson is being held in the Terrebonne Parish jail on $1.5 million bail.

Cammack was taken into custody Aug. 12 in Centerville, Miss., and was transported to the Terrebonne jail, where he remains on $1.5 million bail.

If convicted, both men would face a mandatory life sentence without probation, parole or early release. A principal, or accomplice, can face the same penalty even if he or she doesn't commit the actual murder.

Terrebonne Assistant District Attorney Jay Luke is handling the prosecution.
