ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (AP) - A Baton Rouge-area sheriff’s office says two men were gunned down in a trailer home, and five people have been arrested after a good Samaritan reported seeing a wallet and papers thrown from a car about 60 miles from the trailer home.

Two men turned themselves in Sunday and were arrested on first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Clinton Ray Nicholson, 56, and Brian Mooney, 55, both of St. Francisville, West Feliciana Parish sheriff’s spokeswoman Erin Foster said in a news release. A shed behind Nicholson’s trailer home held remnants of a meth lab, Foster said in an email.

She identified the men arrested Sunday as Paul Bourque Jr., 22, of Youngsville, and Kristofer L. Cockerham, 19, of St. Francisville.

She said three women, identified as Kylie Jackson, 23, of Clinton, and Raven Majoria, 21, and Lindsey Dooley, 26, both of St. Francisville, were arrested Saturday on charges accusing them as principals to murder.

They were dropped off before the shooting and picked up afterward, Foster said.

She said the women were arrested after someone reported the license number and described the occupants of the car from which the wallet and papers had been thrown in Ascension Parish. The wallet belonged to one of the victims, Foster said.

She said in an email that she did not know where in Ascension Parish the wallet was tossed.

An aunt of Cockerham’s was interviewed but not charged, she said.
