MARKSVILLE, LA (WAFB) -

The second Marksville deputy city marshal is expected to be released from jail as early as Wednesday, March 2.

Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse Jr. were arrested on Nov. 6, 2015, accused of shooting and killing Jeremy Mardis, 6, and severely injuring Mardis’ father, Christopher Few. Both are charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of attempted second-degree murder.

Stafford’s lawyers said their client’s family has secured enough property to put up for the $1 million bond. They added they have turned in all required paperwork and everything was filed under seal, meaning it is not open to public record and Stafford is expected to be released this week, as early as Wednesday.

Stafford is being held at Rapides Parish Jail and will have to be transported back to the Avoyelles Parish Prison where he would bond out.

Officials have said between both deputy marshals, 18 rounds were fired and that no gun was found on Few or in his vehicle. They added when Few stepped out of his truck, he had his hands in the air.

Greenhouse Jr. bonded out Nov. 24, 2015 after his family secured $1 million worth of a property bond, but Stafford remained behind bars because his family was having a difficult time coming up with the required $1 million bond.

Stafford’s trial is still slated to begin on Sept. 26, 2016 in Avoyelles Parish.

Greenhouse Jr.’s trial is expected to begin Nov. 28, 2016.
