Man accused in parents' slay faces more charges in 3 deaths

February 07, 2019 - 2:38 AM

LIVINGSTON, La. - A grand jury in Livingston Parish, Louisiana, is set to consider formal charges against a man accused of killing his girlfriend, her family and his parents before fleeing to Virginia.

The Advocate reports District Attorney Scott Perrilloux says he's seeking three counts of first-degree murder against 21-year-old Dakota Theriot in the deaths of Summer Ernest, her brother and her father. The jury will meet Thursday morning.

Authorities say Theriot fatally shot the Ernests and then killed his parents at their neighbouring Ascension Parish home.

He was arrested the next day at his grandmother's home in Virginia. Fearing he would show up, she had checked into a hotel and asked authorities to check her home.

Theriot already is charged with offences including first-degree murder in his parents' deaths in Ascension Parish.
