(AllHipHop News) On Monday (March 13), Lil’ Boosie associate Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding, the alleged triggerman in a man named Terry Boyd’s death in 2009, received grim news for his trial scheduled for March 18th.
They 20-year-old, who was 17 at the time of the alleged murders was told by a judge that the courts are refusing to dismiss one of his first-degree murder indictments and have declined to suppress incriminating statements he allegedly gave Baton Rouge police in 2010.
According to Baton Rouge’s newspaper The Advocate, The East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney’s Office alleges Torence “Lil Boosie” Hatch paid Louding to kill Terry Boyd.
Louding has repeatedly denied killing anyone, telling the jury at Lil Boosie’s trial that he had no involvement in anyone’s murder.
According to reports, Boyd was shot while sitting on a couch at a house on Vermilion Drive on Oct. 21, 2009 through a window.
Louding also is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of local up-and-coming rapper Chris “Nussie” Jackson on Feb. 9, 2009; Marcus Thomas on April 25, 2009; and Charles Matthews and Darryl “Bleek” Milton on April 1, 2010. He is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Michael Smith on Dec. 18, 2009.
A jury acquitted Boosie last May on first-degree murder charges in the slaying of Boyd, aged 35.
But while Louding hopes to be acquitted of his charges, Adrian Pittman, the alleged getaway driver, plead guilty last November to manslaughter and will be sentenced April 24 by the courts.
In Louisiana, first degree murder charges are carried out with death by lethal injection, or life in prison.
Luckily for Louding, he will be tried as a juvenile, as he was only 17 at the time he allegedly committed the crimes.
No word on how this could affect Lil Boosie at the time of print, more news as details emerge.
