A Mississippi resident is accused of murdering a man and dumping his body in a south Terrebonne swamp Sunday.
Ciegie Brown Cheramie, 25, of Ovett, Miss., is charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery and obstruction of justice, according to the Terrebonne Sheriff’s Office.
Two other suspects are sought in connection with the fatal robbery, and they’ve identified the victim through a fingerprint database, said Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter. However, the office won’t release his name until they notify his family.
“We believe the initial plan was to rob the individual,” the sheriff said.
Larpenter declined to give further information about how the robbery turned fatal.
It’s unclear whether the armed robbery took place early Sunday morning or late Saturday night, Larpenter said.
