|Classes resume at WOHS; Fletcher bond $2.5 million|
Classes resumed Monday at West Ouachita High School with additional counselors and personnel on hand to help students deal with last week's tragic events, said Ouachita Parish Schools Superintendent Bob Webber.
One of those tragic events involved the homicide of two western Ouachita Parish residents whose son was indicted by a Ouachita Parish grand jury Monday afternoon on two counts of second-degree murder.
The indicted—Dalton Fletcher, age 15—is accused of fatally shooting his parents, Johnny Fletcher, 50, and Tammy Fletcher, 41. The double homicide occurred in the Fletcher home on Mount Vernon Church Road.
A 4th Judicial District Court judge set Fletcher's bond Monday at $1.25 million for each count of second-degree murder.
Fourth Judicial District Attorney Jerry Jones said Fletcher would be tried as an adult. If convicted of second-degree murder, Fletcher faces life in prison without the benefit of probation or parole.
According to Ouachita Parish Sheriff Royce Toney, Fletcher fatally shot his parents at around 11:30 p.m. Thursday. He went to class Friday morning at West Ouachita High School where he was a student. Sheriff's deputies arrested Fletcher without incident later Friday morning in a classroom at West Ouachita high. Deputies discovered a weapon in Fletcher's vehicle, which was parked at the school.
Meanwhile, law enforcement officials say a West Ouachita High School student who committed suicide late last week was an acquaintance of Dalton Fletcher. The suicide was unrelated to the double homicide of Jonny Fletcher and Tammy Fletcher, officials say.
Additional school counselors and church leaders will be available at West Ouachita High School indefinitely to help students cope with the events that took place last week, Webber said.
Webber talked with West Ouachita High School administrators Monday morning who said "everything is going fine."
Teachers talked with the students during first period for about 15 minutes about what happened Friday.
"It was announced that any students who needed additional counseling, that would be provided," Webber said. "We had additional counselors at the school as well as school psychologists and a lot of youth ministers from the area at the school to help with the children."
About 50 students sought counseling Monday, Webber said.
"Overall, it was a pretty smooth day," Webber continued. "The attendance was about normal for a Monday of this time of year. We had about 40 to 50 kids (absent) out of about 1,050.
"Certainly the students are a little confused, and they're depressed and upset about all the happenings. But, I am real proud of the students and how they handled the situation. I couldn't be more proud of the way they behaved. There was no panic.
"I am very proud of the staff, too, and how they handled the situation. The sheriff's office also did a great job during the entire situation.
"It certainly was a very unfortunate and bad situation, but it could have been worse."
