DONALDSONVILLE, LA (WAFB) - Authorities have arrested two people and are looking for a third in the murder of a man shot to death while sitting on a porch June 2, 2014. The shooting happened just before midnight.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office said Marishell "Kool-aid" Ealem, 28, and Charles "Stubby" Broom, 48, were taken into custody for their alleged involvement in the murder of Adoriji Wilson, 37.
Deputies are still trying to find Michael "Ma-Man" Leblanc, 32. He is wanted for second-degree murder. Ealem is charged with second-degree murder. Detectives did not state which of the men is suspected to be the shooter. Brown faces charges of obstruction and accessory after the fact to second-degree murder.
According to Sheriff Jeff Wiley, investigators were told Wilson was on the porch with others at a home on Elizabeth Street when an unidentified suspect walked up and immediately began firing at Wilson.
Chief Tony Bacala, also with APSO, says drugs are an issue in the area. He says the men arrested Wednesday are considered at the higher levels of the drug culture there.
