BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A grand jury formally indicted Aramis Jackson Thursday. He's primary suspect in a brutal home invasion in Beauregard Town.
Jackson was arrested just days after the brutal murder of Alexandra Engler. Arianna, her 9-year-old daughter, was shot multiple times when police say Jackson came into their home in the early morning hours of Sept. 24th.
"We feel we have a strong case against Aramis Jackson as being the primary suspect," said Baton Rouge Police Department's Sgt. Don Kelly.
The grand jury indicted Jackson on one count of first degree murder and one count of attempted first degree murder. East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore said because of the brutality of the crime, he plans to seek the maximum sentence.
"This is the case the death penalty is made for. To me, knowing what I know, death is the only appropriate sentence in this case," said Moore.
"The police department concurs with that. I think just about everybody in the community feels there is a need for the death penalty," said Sgt. Kelly.
Sgt. Kelly said a second man was with Jackson at the time of the murder. Two and a half months later, Beauregard Town neighbors said Thursday's indictment is one step closer to bringing one suspect to justice.
"I'm thankful and eager for justice to be served. I think everyone in the community is just really relieved," said Beauregard Town Civic Association's Brian Goad.
Relieved, but still concerned.
"But there's still one person out there that hasn't been caught. Everyone is just cautious and staying observant," said Goad.
"At this point, we have not been able to gather sufficient evidence to identify or charge a second suspect in the case," said Sgt. Kelly.
Jackson is scheduled for an arrangement next week.
Moore said Jackson has been appointed a public defender who's been on the case since his arrest, so they're hoping to move the case along rather quickly.
