A Lafayette Parish grand jury handed up murder indictments in two separate cases today.

John Christopher McGraw, 34, of Marrero was indicted on two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the September slayings of Larry and Madrona Brown. They were shot to death while sitting in their car in the parking lot of the IHOP restaurant on Evangeline Thurway.

McGraw was arrested last month, and remains in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center with no bond set for his release. He has no bond because he is charged with first-degree murder, which is a capital offense which could result in the death penalty.

In the other case, Earl James Darby, 32, of Broussard was indicted on charges of second-degree murder, obstruction of justice and intimidation of a witness in connection with the October slaying of Jacobie James Boudreaux. Boudreaux's body was found by police at a gas station near Youngsville; he had been shot to death. 

Darby was arrested shortly after the shooting and remains in LPCC with bond set at $300,000 for his release. His bond previously was set at $250,000 on the murder charge, but the court added bonds of $50,000 on each of the other charges.
