Baton Rouge-born rapper, Torrence Hatch, known to fans as Lil Boosie, was indicted by an East Baton Rouge
According to District Attorney Hillar Moore, if convicted Hatch, who is already in prison for a probation violation, could face the death penalty.
Detectives told WAFB that Terry Boyd, 35, was shot to death on Oct. 21, when bullets were fired through a window of his Baton Rouge home. A grand jury also indicted Adrian Pittman, 36, and Michael Louding, 17, for
first-degree murder in Boyd's death, said WAFB.
Hatch, 27, and his girlfriend Walnita Decur, 25, were also indicted on several drug-related charges.
This is not the first run in with the law for for the flashy rapper. In September, Hatch pleaded guilty to drug and gun charges after deputies confiscated marijuana and a gun from his car. Hatch is currently in jail for violating his probation in November for leaving his house, on more than one occasion, while sentenced to home confinement.
Hatch grew up in a poor neighborhood of Baton Rouge, and his father was absent from his childhood. He played basketball while attending high school but was expelled for drugs, so Hatch decided to become a rapper. He worked with rapper C-Loc and his group Concentration Camp and made his debut on C-Loc's fifth album, It's a Gamble in 2000. Shortly afterwards, Hatch released his debut album For My Thugz as Lil Boosie in 2003.
