LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Lee Roy Williams, the man arrested in connection with the murders of four people in Lake Charles over Labor Day weekend, has been indicted by a Calcasieu Grand jury on four counts of first degree murder.  The indictment was announced in State District Court Tuesday morning.

51-year-old Lee Roy Williams was arrested back in September in the deaths of 28-year-old Crystal Dawn Fruge, 29-year-old Kendrick Warren Lavergne, 19-year-old Terry Lynn Banks and 26-year-old Jessica M. Eugene.

The quadruple murder occurred at Fairview Estates Mobile Home Park Labor Day weekend.

Williams allegedly inflicted multiple injuries with different weapons on some victims. All but Eugene were shot--all but Lavergne suffered multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma.

Williams is in the Calcasieu Jail where he's been held without bond since his arrest in September. Prosecutors have not yet indicated whether they will seek the death penalty for Williams.

We hope to talk to District Attorney John DeRosier about the indictment later this afternoon.
