DERIDDER, LA (KPLC) -

A sanity commission has been appointed in the case of Christopher Bounds, accused in the 2011 deaths of a Dry Creek woman and her two young daughters.

That's according to the Beauregard Parish District Attorney's Office.

Court officials are awaiting the reports from doctors.

Bounds was indicted in the triple murder case earlier this month in 36th Judicial District Court.

The Calcasieu Parish Coroner's Office determined that all three victims -- Patricia Kreuzberger, 40, and 10-year-old Mya and 5-year-old Nichole -- died from causes other than the fire and their deaths were classified as homicides. State Fire Marshal investigators determined that the fire was intentionally set.

The charges against Bounds are three counts of first-degree murder and one count each of armed robbery, aggravated burglary and aggravated arson.

Authorities said the indictments were the result of an investigation by the Louisiana State Fire Marshal's Office, the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office and the Calcasieu Parish Coroner's Office.

Bounds was indicted earlier this year by a Beauregard Parish grand jury on unrelated charges of aggravated rape and sexual battery of a minor, aggravated burglary, aggravated second-degree battery and resisting an officer with force or violence.

    If you have ever had imaging done at a medical office or hospital, then had to go to another office for follow-up, chances are, you have had to go with a CD of your file or paper copy. That is changing thanks to a medical image sharing network.

    For years we've heard about the need for a new I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge. There is a time line and an upcoming public meeting is part of the process of determining what will happen and when. Though the discussion is usually about a new I-10 bridge, the proposed project includes improvements between I-10 and 210 interchanges. The bridge has safety issues because of how steep it is, congestion,  no shoulders and short entrance ramps that don't meet today's design ...

    It was another day of political gridlock on Capitol Hill as members of the Senate made another push to repeal and replace Obamacare. Republican senators are drafting a proposal which likely won't include any replacement ideas but a "Skinny repeal" that would take out unpopular parts of the Affordable Care Act. Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy explained today how the repeal would impact Americans.
