CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - A Beaumont man charged with second-degree murder in connection to a killing on I-10 in Sulphur has been extradited to Calcasieu Correctional Center.

Kenneth Dawayne "Fat Rat" Williams, 32, Beaumont, turned himself in to Beaumont Police on July 3, according to Kim Myers, spokesperson for Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Williams was transferred to Calcasieu Parish Wednesday morning.

Ronald G. McLain, who was also arrested for second-degree murder in the case, will be extradited eventually, but Myers says CPSO is not sure when since he has parole violations in Texas that need to be worked out.

Myers says the 14-year-old who was involved in the murder was arrested by Texas law enforcement on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle. The District Attorney's Office will review the report regarding his involvement in the murder of Deville and make a determination if and/or what charges will be accepted.

The Sheriff's Office issued a second-degree murder arrest warrant for Williams on June 30 in the case of John Michael DeVille, 68, Lake Charles, who was found deceased near his truck on the shoulder of I-10 westbound near Ruth Street in the early morning hours of Tuesday, June 26.  His bond is $1 million.

Det. Casey Lafargue is the lead investigator.
