THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - A Lafourche Parish grand jury has indicted 35-year-old David Brown on multiple charges tied to the stabbing death of a mother and her two children in Lockport.
Deputies says they believe Brown killed 29-year-old Jacquelin Nieves, and her two daughters, 6-year-old Gabriela and 20-month-old Izabela on Nov. 4.
Deputies say Brown allegedly raped two of the females before killing them.
Their bodies were found during an apartment fire. Officials say the fire was set to cover up the murders.
Brown was indicted on three counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of sexual battery and one count of aggravated arson.
He is being held in the Lafourche Parish jail on a $3.2 million bond. Arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 19.
