BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Two men have been indicted for a double homicide that happened May 18, 2014 on Gardere Ln. A third person police believe is connected to the double homicide is still wanted.

Charles Lanaute, 19, and Darrius Montel Miller, 22, both of St. Gabriel, LA have each been formally charged with two counts of first degree murder and one count of armed robbery. They are both being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a $25,000 bond.

Detectives are still looking for Plug Lanaute, 19, of St. Gabriel, LA. for armed robbery and two counts of first degree murder. Detectives believe he could be in St. John the Baptist Parish. Officials say he is considered armed and dangerous.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office reported the shooting happened at an apartment on Gardere Lane at Ned Avenue in Baton Rouge.

According to reports Charles Lanaute, Plug Lanaute and Darrius Miller went to the victim's residence to sell marijuana. When they arrived Charles Lanaute alleged that he stayed downstairs with the marijuana while Miller and Plug Lanaute went upstairs into the apartment. Police believe they shot and robbed both victims.

The victims were identified as Orok Ironbar, 32, and Russell Celestin, 31, both of Baton Rouge.

Plug Lanaute is also wanted by the Baton Rouge Police Department for attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery, illegal use of a weapon and simple robbery in a separate investigation. According to police, Lanaute pulled a gun on two people and robbed them as they were walking on E. Boyd Avenue on Oct. 24, 2014. Investigators said he was then in a drug deal on Alvin Dark Avenue on Nov. 1, 2014 and fired shots at a man. They added the victim survived the gunshot wounds to his neck and shoulder.

Anyone with information as to Plug Lanaute's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 225-344-STOP (7867).
