Calcasieu Parish grand jurors on Thursday indicted a man on charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in connection with a June 14 shooting on North Cherry Street.
Authorities say Lionel J. Rubin, 27, shot and killed 23-year-old Shane Landry and wounded a 62-year-old woman, whose name hasn’t been released.
If convicted of first-degree murder, Rubin faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole, and he could face the death penalty if prosecutors choose to seek it.
Grand jurors also indicted a Lake Charles woman on two counts of vehicular homicide stemming from an April 22 crash on U.S. 171.
State police said Megan L. Schexnider, 25, was driving under the influence of drugs when the crash occurred. Dalensia Rose, 13, and Vincent Austin, 44, both of Lake Charles, were killed in the crash.
Police said a vehicle driven by Schexnider struck the car Rose was in; Austin was changing a tire at the time. Schexnider was also charged with careless operation and driving under suspension.
