BATON ROUGE (WBRZ) - A plea deal was reached in the high-profile murder of a woman and the shooting injury of her small child in their Beauregard Town home almost seven years ago.
The deal means Aramis Jackson won't be put to death for killing Alexandra Engler, 42, and the injuring of her daughter, Ariana. The shooting happened in 2010. Jackson is expected to be sentenced to life in prison plus fifty years for murder and attempted murders. He will not be eligible for parole.
Investigators said DNA linked Jackson to the home invasion and shooting in Beauregard Town.
Previously, prosecutors had planned to pursue the death penalty in the case.
Jackson's plea comes with a likely life sentence.
