LIVINGSTON PARISH La. (WAFB) - A man has been indicted for murder in connection with a deadly, and possibly domestic-related, shooting in Livingston Parish.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office began investigating a fatal shooting in the 19000 block of McLin Road Saturday, Sept. 28.

Carol Hutchinson, 48, was killed, according to a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office.

Errol W. Hicks, 62, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. He was indicted by a Livingston Parish grand jury Nov. 6. An arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 12.

“Unfortunately, I can confirm that one female has died tonight. The evidence, at this hour, is pointing to this being a case of domestic violence,” said Sheriff Jason Ard “One suspect is in custody. We know multiple rounds were fired at our crime scene. Detectives are working to process the evidence collected. This investigation is very much ongoing. We can’t reveal names at this time as we work to alert family members connected to this case.”
