Ferriday murder suspects make court appearance

VIDALIA — The four men accused in a gruesome April murder appeared in court Wednesday.

Bryant LaKeith Bethley, Daniel Durans Butler and Reginald James Butler are all charged with second-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of Reginald Green.

Andreas Marquez Cauley is charged with obstruction of justice.

Bethley’s attorneys filed motions for subpoenas to be issued to other agencies, and has asked to be able to test evidence such as blood samples. Bethley’s case will have a status hearing Sept. 22.

Reginald Butler had filed a motion to suppress evidence on his own, but Judge Glen Strong decided not to address the motion and instructed Reginald Butler to have his attorney file any future motions.

A motion for Reginald Butler’s bond reduction will be heard Aug. 18.

Daniel Butler’s attorneys filed the same motions as Bethley’s, and his case will also have a Sept. 22 status hearing.

Cauley’s attorney, Andy Magoun, said they are in negotiation with the district attorney’s office, so the judge set the matter for a Sept. 1 status hearing.

Bethley is the alleged gunman in the killing, and the Butler brothers are alleged to be complicit in the murder by being in the vehicle Bethley used to leave the scene.

Cauley is accused of throwing the alleged murder weapon — a .223-caliber rifle — into Black Bayou. It was later recovered.

Green was killed in a vehicle parked on Alabama Avenue in Ferriday. He was shot several times in the body and head.
