New Charges Added Against Scott Woman In Vehicular Homicide Case
The state Attorney General's Office charged with obstruction of justice Monday the 23-year-old Scott woman already facing a vehicular homicide charge in the 2014 death of Jerry Meaux.
Blair Marie Duhon's trial has been set for Sept. 13 when she will appear in court for allegedly crossing the center line and crashing into an opposing vehicle killing 74-year-old Jerry Meaux in April 2014.
Our news partner KATC, reported the case was refiled after 15th Judicial District Court Judge Marilyn Castle signed a motion recusing all 15th Judicial District Court judges from the case because thevictim is the father of current District Court Judge Michelle Meaux Breaux, who was elected in November.
Duhon remains in custody at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center with bond set at $301,000.
There were no details as to why the obstruction of justice charge was added.
