A Louisiana grand jury indicted two deputy marshals on murder charges Thursday in connection with the shooting death of a 6-year-old autistic boy and the wounding of his father last month.

Norris Greenhouse Jr., 23, and Derrick Stafford, 32, were arrested on second-degree murder charges last month. The indictment handed up by an Avoyelles Parish grand jury charged the men with one count each of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder, Fox News reports.

Police say Stafford, a full-time police lieutenant, and Greenhouse, a former police officer, were moonlighting as deputy city marshals in Marksville on the night of Nov. 3 when they fired at least 18 rounds at a car driven by Christopher Few. Few was critically wounded by two gunshots, while his son, Jeremy Mardis, received five gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.
