BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Jury selection is expected to begin Monday in a double-murder case that sent shockwaves across the LSU campus three and a half years ago.
Twenty-two-year-old Devin Jamell Parker of Baton Rouge is charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the shooting deaths of LSU graduate students 31-year-old Chandrasekhar Reddy Komma and 33-year-old Kiran Kumar Allam, both of India.
Allam's pregnant wife found the men's bodies inside Allam's Edward Gay apartment on Dec. 13, 2007. Officials investigating the case say both men were shot in the head and one was bound.
The Advocate reports Parker and two other Baton Rouge men were booked in May 2008 in the killings, but only Parker was indicted four months later.
