New trial dates set

VIDALIA — Trials dates have been rescheduled for three of the four men charged in connection with the April 3 murder of a 25-year-old Ferriday man.

Daniel Durans Butler, Reginald Butler and Bryant LaKeith Bethley all faced Judge Glen Strong Wednesday morning.

The trails for all three men were moved to May 16 at the Seventh Judicial District Courthouse in Vidalia.

Trials for the three suspects were originally set for April 18, but were moved because the medical examiner for the case is scheduled to be out of the country during that time.

A status hearing is set for March 9 for all three men.

Judge Strong also reduced the bonds of both Daniel and Reginald Butler.

Daniel Butler’s bond was lowered from $500,000 to $250,000, while Reginald Butler’s was lowered from $250,000 to $125,000.

This was the second time Reginald’s bond has been lowered. It was originally set at $500,000.

Daniel Butler, Reginald Butler and Bethley were all charged with second-degree murder at their arraignment June 2, while Daniel Butler and Andreas Marquez Cauley, the fourth suspect in the case, were indicted on charges of obstruction of justice.

All four men were arrested in connection to the shooting on the 800 block of Alabama Avenue that left 25-year-old Reginald Green dead.

Green was sitting in a parked SUV with three other people at the time of the shooting. While he was shot repeatedly in the head and torso with a .223-caliber rifle, the others in the vehicle were uninjured.

Bethley is believed to be the gunman in the incident, and Daniel Butler and Reginald Butler — who are brothers — were allegedly in the vehicle in which Bethley fled the scene, according to Ferriday Police investigators.

Cauley allegedly threw the gun used in the killing into Black Bayou, but agents with the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries later recovered it.
