Lavergne requests names of witnesses

In a new set of court filings, confessed killer Brandon Scott Lavergne is asking a judge to release to him the names of grand jury witnesses who testified against him and the transcript of a secretly recorded meeting with his ex-wife while he was jailed in 2004.

Lavergne also alleges that officials with Louisiana State Penitentiary, where he is serving a life sentence, denied him access to the law library and withheld documents mailed to him from the 15th Judicial District Court in Lafayette. And he wants a judge to issue a gag order in the case to squelch further media coverage.

The eight motions, two letters of inquiry and a copy of a request for an emergency administrative remedy were received by 15th Judicial District Court from Lavergne on Jan. 22.
