KATC's Marcelle Fontenot sat down with District Attorney Mke Harson today and he provided a little more information about the Pate and Shunick cases.
He says Brandon Lavergne was brought before a 2008 grand jury in connection with Lisa Pate's murder, but that grand jury found there was not enough evidence to indict Lavergne.
Two years is the earliest Harson believes Lavergne will stand trial on either the Shunick or Pate cases.
The DA also says he has not been contacted by any other parish or jurisdiction about the possibility of Lavergne being connected to any other missing person or unsolved murder.
The rest of our questions dealing with the arrest and investigation were not answered; Harson said most of the details will be saved for the trial.
