Suspect indicted in Highland double homicide


A Shreveport man has been indicted on two counts of second degree murder in the shooting deaths of a Highland neighborhood couple.

57-year-old Stephen Bryant and 49-year-old Madonna Dean Wachter were found shot to death inside a home in the 200 block of Columbia Street on January 3, 2013.

A family member discovered the bodies while checking on them after one of them didn't show up for work that morning.

The deaths of Bryant and Wachter mark the first and second homicides of the new year.

23-year-old Robert Ferris was arrested on a warrant 11 days later in Bossier City.

He remains in custody at the Caddo Correctional Center on $800,000 bond.
