KKK Leader Indicted for Murdering Recruit

Remember that news story last November where KKK members were rounded up in St. Tammany Parish for killing a woman, one of their own recruits who wanted out? Well, Raymond "Chuck" Foster, 44, the alleged Imperial Wizard of the group, is going to trial at some point. WWL TV and the local paper report that a St. Tammany Parish grand jury has indicted him for second degree murder.

The Times Picayune reports this story in far more detail than does WWL.
While seven other alleged Sons of Dixie members also were booked on obstruction of justice charges in the murder last November, the jury only indicted Shane Foster, 20, the leader's son, and Frank Stafford, 21. (
The comments on the indictment at WWL and at The Picayune will most likely run from disturbing to entertaining.

I wonder if Foster will make it to Angola. We've had some cases here that look like a slam dunk, but the jury lets the racist go free anyway. However, he obviously didn't shoot an ethnic minority. He shot a white woman. I'll be watching this case.
