Grand Jury Clears Houma Man In Shooting Death
THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Terrebonne Parish grand jury has found that a Houma man acted in self-defense when he killed a man knocking on his neighbor's door in July.
Prosecutors told the Daily Comet that the grand jury found that Ray Carlos, who had been charged with second-degree murder, acted in self-defense when he shot James Rube, 29, of Gray, on July 6.
Houma police got a call from Rube's ex-girlfriend, Nikki Frickey, saying Rube was causing a disturbance at her home. Around 3 a.m., Rube banged on Frickey's door, breaking a window and waking up Carlos.
Prosecutors say they are not looking for additional evidence to continue the case.
