Man wanted for Lafayette woman's death to be extradited from Pennsylvania

A 43-year-old Youngsville man who is wanted in connection with the death of a 29-year-old Lafayette woman will be returned to Lafayette Parish from Pennsylvania, where he was recently apprehended, a representative of his said Friday.

The man is facing vehicular homicide charges in connection with the woman's death in June 2012. Police believe he was intoxicated when he crashed into the woman's vehicle on Youngsville Highway.

The man was due to stand trial March 25, but vanished just before his trial would begin. He later posted a video to YouTube claiming that he was being mischaracterized and hunted down by overzealous prosecutors. Authorities who looked for him at one time called him "the most wanted man in Lafayette Parish."His previous criminal convictions were well-publicized, even though they are not at issue in this case.

Late last week, he was arrested outside of a Philadelphia bar. He will now be extradited back to Lafayette Parish. A new date for his trial, which will include simple burglary and felon in possession of a firearm charges that are unrelated to the fatal crash, has not yet been announced.

While we understand that facing criminal chargers can be very frightening, running from them is not the right thing to do. We gather that this man has concerns about the fairness and validity of the charges against him, but fleeing to Pennsylvania in no way helped his case.

Even if it seems harder, organizing a thorough defense to the accusations against you is the only right thing to do in situations like this man's.
