A 20-year-old Baton Rouge man was indicted Thursday in the Aug. 14 shooting death of a man who was shot in the face while watching a fistfight between two sisters.
An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged Trei Diante Bailey, 4766 Shelley St., Apt. B, with second-degree murder in the killing of D’Andre Robertson outside Bailey’s apartment.
The grand jury also indicted Bailey’s brother, Lee Michael Williams, 24, 4766 Shelley St., on an obstruction of justice charge.
Bailey is accused of shooting Robertson at 10:50 p.m. while the men watched two sisters fight about baby clothes, an affidavit of probable cause says. Williams was not completely honest with Baton Rouge police when he initially told them what happened, an affidavit states.
If Bailey is convicted of second-degree murder, he would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison. Williams would face up to 40 years in prison if found guilty of obstructing justice.
The case has been assigned to state District Judge Trudy White.
