The man accused of killing two people, including a Louisiana State Police trooper, during a deadly rampage across three parishes on October 9 is now being held in a high-security wing of Angola State Prison.

According to WBRZ, Matthew Mire was in custody in Livingston Parish Tuesday morning, where he's facing charges that include two counts of attempted first degree murder, home invasion, burglary from a vehicle, and theft of a motor vehicle. He was moved to Ascension Parish; there, he's accused of two counts of first degree murder, two counts of attempted first degree murder, armed robbery, illegal use of weapons, home invasion, and illegal possession of stolen things. Along with charges in Ascension and Livingston Parishes, he's facing charges in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Tuesday evening, Mire was moved to Angola, where the Department of Corrections says he was relocated at the request of Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre.

He's being held separate from inmates who are currently serving out sentences, WBRZ reports.

31-year-old Mire was arrested on October 9 and hospitalized after an hours long rampage during which State Trooper Adam Gaubert and Prairieville resident Pamela Adair were killed and another person was injured.

He also was booked in East Baton Rouge Parish on multiple charges, including attempted first degree murder of a police officer, resisting an officer, and obstruction of justice.
