An Opelousas man is now facing murder charges in the death of a 19-year-old man earlier this year.  On Wednesday, a St. Landry Parish grand jury indicted 19 year old Traylan Batiste in the murder of Donnie Sam last June, in an open field, in the 900 block of Truman Street.

When police arrived, they found sam under a tree, shot twice in his chest and once in the head. A first degree murder conviction carries a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment without the benefit of probation, parole, suspension of sentence or the death penalty.
