Prosecution releases phone records, texts in Seth Fontenot case

The prosecutor handling the Seth Fontenot murder case has filed documents showing he intends to introduce text messages and mobile phone records to help prove a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 15-year-old Austin Rivault.

According to documents filed Tuesday afternoon, Assistant District Attorney Mark Garber plans to show that Fontenot "had made up his mind to shoot someone about two months before he encountered the victims."

The documents also include records of text messages, including one from Fontenot, saying "Ima shoot them next time. I sleep with my gun now. I almost had em" after he texted someone tried to break into his truck at his home in December, two months prior to the shooting.

Fontenot is scheduled to go to trial on Nov. 12 on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Rivault and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of William Bellamy and Cole Kelly.
