Four Lafayette residents were indicted in the June kidnapping of a man, court records show.

Cameron Strother, 19; Javin Landry, 20; Summer Lemaire, 19; and Donovan King, 25, were all indicted by a Lafayette Parish grand jury on Wednesday.

They're all facing a charge of aggravated kidnapping, records show.

They're accused in connection with a June 20 incident that happened on Rue Royale - where Lemaire, Strother and Landry live. City Police say a man said he was invited to an apartment by a friend, and when he arrived the people there robbed and kidnapped him at gunpoint. He told police several men took his belongings, police say.

When Lemaire was arrested in July, the jail records show the arresting officer said she allegedly admitted to knowing about a crime that was committed.

Lemaire was re-arrested Saturday on the warrant issued followin the indictment. Strother, Landry and King all were still being held in LPCC last week when they were indicted.

They all were initially arrested and booked by police this summer with aggravated kidnapping and armed robbery.

If convicted of the aggravated kidnapping charge, they face a mandatory life sentence.
