Accused killer in Bossier City double slaying enters plea

 Inquisitor News

The suspect in the Mother’s Day weekend killing of two Bossier women appeared in court Tuesday morning and entered a plea of not guilty.

Brandon Santrell Butler, 26, of Bossier City, appeared before Bossier District Judge Mike Nerren, accompanied by his attorney, Randall Fish.

Butler is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 24-year-old Jacqueline Darlene Beadle and 26-year-old Karyl Ann Cox, who were found deceased at their home on Bragg Street in Bossier City.

Police were called to the residence on Sunday, May 11, at about 8:15 a.m. after Beadle’s mother went to the house to check on her after not hearing from her since the Friday before, when Jacqueline took her child to her mother’s home for baby-sitting. Beadle’s mother found the two victims inside the residence.

Butler, who was friends with the women, allegedly shot them both inside the house and then drove away from the scene in Cox’s car, which police later found parked in Bogalusa.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
