EDGARD, La. (AP) — A state judge has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a Reserve couple after they failed to attend the final status conference before their second-degree murder trial in the death of their 8-year-old son.
The judge waited for nearly an hour for Tonya and Errol Victor Sr. on Monday before issuing the warrant.
One of the Victors' sons tells The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/mUQZ1B) he believes his parents have fled the area because they believe they cannot get a fair trial with their current attorney.
M.L. Lloyd III, Tonya Victor's son and Errol Victor's stepson, was pronounced dead after being brought by the Victors to the River Parishes Hospital emergency room in April 2008.
