Louisiana man faces murder charge in Indiana deathJune 24, 2014
By The Associated Press
PRINCETON — Southwestern Indiana prosecutors have charged a Louisiana man with murder after autopsy evidence contradicted an eyewitness account in a man’s death.
A Gibson County judge found probable cause Monday to charge 53-year-old Claude Arender with murder in Friday’s death of 21-year-old Raheim Bright of Vincennes. The Choushatta, Louisiana, man remains jailed without bond and also faces an original voluntary manslaughter charge.
Authorities say Arender fatally shot Bright during a fight outside a Princeton home.
Prosecutor Robert Krieg tells the Evansville Courier & Press Arender’s son initially told police the gun went off when Arender struck Bright in the head with it several times.
But an autopsy concluded that Bright died from a single gunshot to the rear of his head and the
cause of death was homicide.
