Defense Funding, Bond To Be Discussed In Dakota Theriot Case

Defense attorneys in the case against accused killer Dakota Theriot will be in an Ascension Parish courtroom today fighting for more funds.

Theriot is accused of killing his parents in Ascension Parish and three others in Livingston Parish back in January.

Theriot's attorneys have asked the judge to help find a source of funds for the defense team or halt the prosecution in the meantime.

They say they need money in order to conduct their own investigations and hire experts.

The judge recently told defense lawyers they needed to provide more information, such as documents as to how much has already been spent.

A bond hearing is also expected to take place today.
