Two suspects have been indicted for murder in connection to the May shooting death of a Montegut man, prosecutors said. 

A Lafourche Parish grand jury found enough evidence Thursday to charge Terance Dupre, 22, and Devante Matthews, 21, with the second-degree murder of 53-year-old Kirby Corteaux on May 15, authorities said.

Authorities began investigating Courteaux’s disappearance May 14 after his family members reported him missing since May 11, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators learned Courteaux had been fatally shot at a boat launch on La. 665 in Pointe-aux-Chenes in Lafourche Parish and his body taken to Morgan City, authorities said. Lafourche detectives found bullet casings and other evidence at the scene.

Morgan City Police found Courteaux’s body at Levee Road and Veterans Boulevard, authorities said. An autopsy later showed the victim had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Dupre and Matthews are both scheduled to be arraigned Friday. They are currently being held in the Lafourche Parish jail on a $1 million bond. 

If convicted of second-degree murder, both men face a mandatory life sentence without probation, parole or early release.
