The suspect accused in last weekend's murders in St. Mary Parish has been transferred to another facility. Wilbert Thibodeaux was moved from the Angola Prison to the Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel today, which has an acute mental health unit.
This week his public defender will file a motion to have doctors determine whether Thibodeaux was sane at the time of the shootings. If he is found to be incompetent, the state will order him to be sent to a state mental hospital. Thibodeaux will not be able to stand trial unless he is considered competent. Thibodeaux is accused of killing a Chitimacha police officer, wounding two St. Mary Parish deputies, and killing another man.
