BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - The teen accused of stabbing a Bossier City woman to death was indicted Monday.
The Grand Jury returned a first degree murder indictment for 14-year-old Donzell Hogan in the stabbing death of 91-year-old Ludella Scott.
Investigators believe Hogan stabbed Scott to death and robbed her of money back on July 1 in the victim's home in the 1300 block of North Hamilton Circle.
According to the indictment, Hogan was able to be charged as an adult for first degree murder because the victim allegedly killed by Hogan was over 65-years-old and the act was committed during an armed robbery.
According to a Supreme Court ruling back in 2005, the death penalty is forbidden in all states for those under the age of 18 at the time of their crime.
Hogan is currently being held at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.
