LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - As Logan Armistead fights for his life in a hospital bed, his alleged attackers are in a jail cell. At around 3:45 in the afternoon, on Tuesday, the Lake Charles Police Department had a major break in the case.

"Jake Tullos turned himself in to the Lake Charles Police department," said detective Jeff Keenum with the Lake Charles Police Department.

22 year old, Jake Tullos and 22 year old, Anthony Chaumont are both being charged with attempted manslaughter.

"We are quite confident that we have the right people involved in this," said Detective Keenum.

At first, police were saying that three men were responsible, but with further investigation police were able to rule out one of the suspects.

"We know the third person involved in this, and during the course of the investigation it was deemed that he was not involved in the incident with the off-duty deputy," said detective Keenum.

Logan's condition has not changed much. He is still considered to be in an unresponsive coma in a Lafayette hospital. The family has set up a website for friends and family to check on Logan's condition and share some words of encouragement.
