THIBODAUX, Louisiana — Deputies say a suspect in a Thibodaux double murder is accused of setting a towel on fire before covering a camera at the parish jail.

Lafourche Parish sheriff's spokesman Brennan Matherne tells The Daily Comet ( 21-year-old Alfred Starks, of Thibodaux, faces additional charges of aggravated arson and tampering with a surveillance system.

Thibodaux police arrested Starks on Sept. 25, 2013, after 19-year-old Tre Scott and 26-year-old Jordy Williams were found shot dead in a car. Police say Starks was in a crowd of onlookers who gathered at the scene as officers investigated.

When a fire alarm sounded about Friday afternoon, Matherne says correctional officers saw that Starks had set the fire.
