An Acadia Parish man has been sentenced to life in prison. In 2005, Daniel Prince Murdered Angela Matte and Jackie Campbell in their trailer in Branch after they had been out celebrating Campbell's 40th birthday. He then set the trailer on fire to conceal the murders.
Numerous motions by his attorneys along with a delay after he was charged with smuggling marijuana and pornography into the Acadia Parish Jail delayed the trial for five years. Prince was sentenced to life in prison, without the chance of parole.
