The Louisiana State police arrest Greenhouse and Stafford for their involvement in Mardis’ killing and charge them with second degree murder and attempted second degree murder. Police say 18 rounds had been fired by two different guns. Police:
We took some of the body cam footage. I’m not gonna talk about it, but I’m gonna tell you this. It is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen and I will leave it at that…As a father, much less the head of the State Police, [it was] extremely disturbing, and it is partly why we’re here tonight with these charges…Let’s make tonight about Jeremy Mardis. That little boy was buckled in the front seat of that vehicle, and that is how he died…Justice has been done tonight, but the investigation is far from over.
