News For Wednesday 03/12/14

News for Wednesday 031214

By Dave Graichen


One victim is dead and another is in serious condition  After a  shooting incident  last night shortly before 10 in the 1100 block of Brannon Road near Pineville. Rapides Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene to find 40 year old David Wayne Lachney of Pineville, unresponsive and another person seriously injured. An investigation determined that Lachney and the other victim, whose name has not been released, were involved in an altercation, and Lachney allegedly shot the victim and then turned the gun on himself.


On  Tuesday, the  first  full  day  of  the  legislative  session,  the House appropriations committee took a long look at the proposed 25-billion dollar budget for next fiscal year. But, before lawmakers can even think about next year’s budget, there are some budget holes that need to be filled in the current budget. The Senate Finance Committee learned yesterday up to $87 million in gaps exist in health care, education, prison and other state programs for the budget year that ends June 30.


On the first full day of the 2014 Louisiana Legislature, a House panel Tuesday churned out bills that would authorize prestige license plates to honor the late artist George Rodrigue, master gardeners, U.S. Army Rangers, winners of the Distinguished Service Cross and other causes. All the proposals breezed through the House Transportation Committee with little discussion. Most will be placed on the House list of noncontroversial bills when they are reviewed by the full chamber. The state has 215 specialty plates now with the LSU designation topping the list.


Legislation has been filed that  allows teachers and principals, who are concealed handgun permit owners,  to  bring  their guns into the schools  they  work at. The bill is by Chalmette representative  Ray Garofola, who says  this  is  in  response  to  an  increase  in gun violence, particularly on school campuses. Garofola says the bill not only requires teachers and administrators to possess a concealed carry permit, it also requires them to undergo eight  hours  of annual tactical training. The measure will be heard at a later date by the House Criminal Justice Committee.


And two bills that  attempt  to crack down on human trafficking have been  filed. Governor Bobby Jindal  threw  his  support  behind  the legislation  during  a  Tuesday  afternoon press conference. He says Baton Rouge ranks in the top ten cities  in  the  nation  for  human trafficking.


 A New Orleans lawmaker says a person should be 18 or over if they want  to tank in a bed that emits ultra-violate light. Rep. Helena Moreno says  she was approached by a group of dermatologists who asked her to file  legislation that would make it against the law for teens 17 and under to  lay in a UV tanning bed. A House panel will hear the measure today.


In New Iberia, deputies have identified the victim and a suspect  in a  deadly  shooting  that  took  place  Monday  afternoon.  They say 24-year-old  Uriah  Joseph  was  shot  several  times  and died at a hospital. Iberia Parish Sheriff's investigators are now  looking for Michael Augustine who is wanted for second degree murder.


Tragedy  this  Tuesday morning  on I-55. State Police say a two people  died after one person allegedly  drove  drunk  onto the wrong side of the interstate causing a multi-vehicle crash.


 A Caddo Parish man on death row has been released from Angola after a  Caddo Parish District Judge signed an order vacating Glenn Ford's first  degree murder conviction and death sentence. Ford was convicted for the  1983 murder of a Shreveport jeweler store owner. New evidence "supports findings that Ford was neither present at,  nor a participant in the robbery and murder.


Two  brothers  are now facing federal charges in connection with the Mother's Day "second  line" parade shooting in New Orleans, in which twenty people were injured  in  May. Twenty year-old Akein (ah KEEN) Scott and twenty-five year old Shawn Scott-along with seven others - violated gun control acts -according  to authorities- and drug laws. All are members of a local New Orleans gang.


Officials in the Baton Rouge  area  have  talked about an interstate loop  around  the  capital  city  for years, and  now,  there's  new discussion in the legislative session.  Baton  Rouge  Representative

Steve Carter says they are seeking state funding to conduct  studies for a proposed alternate highway around Baton Rouge. The  price  tag  for  the  feasibility  study  is about $3.5 million dollars.
