Mauricio Cumbrera could now face the death penalty for allegedly killing his wife and step-daughter after he was indicted again.
Originally, Cumbrera was indicted on two counts of second-degree murder for the murders of his wife, Anna Trahan, and step-daughter, Julia Ann Landry, in September near Sulphur.
Thursday his case went back before the Calcasieu Grand Jury, but this time he was indicted on two counts of first-degree murder which carries the possibility of a death sentence.
So far, there's no word if the state will seek the death sentence against Cumbrera.
