Baton Rouge police arrested two men Wednesday in the June 1 shooting and eventual death of a 32-year-old man on Wilmot Street.

A relative found Kurt Howard, 4941 Wilmot St., in his home June 1 with a gunshot to the head, police have said.

He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead Friday, police said.

Police arrested Benjamin Morgan, 20, 4844 Pecan Grove Drive, St. Francisville, for allegedly shooting Howard during an armed robbery, said L’Jean McKneely, a police spokesman.

Morgan was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of first-degree murder.

McKneely said Morgan and another man, Richard Anderson, 28, 1855 Boulevard De Province, went to Howard’s home to rob him of money and drugs.

Anderson was booked into Parish Prison on one count of principal to first-degree murder and possession of Schedule IV drugs.

This is from the real Rmom! A lot of things are happening now for Kdad & Kmom please take the time to say a prayer for them during these hard times. As one of the parents of the accused my heart goes out to my husband for all he has endured during this time for his loss! I love you! May y'all get some closer for Kurt during these next few months.

So, Is Richard still in Jail? I feel quite certain that he is no longer considered mentally competent. He's done "wrong" for too many years. Only Jesus can help him now.

If the DA's office would have put him in jail after the first time he OD'd everyone would be serving the time they should be serving, now that he's safely tucked away, and deals have been secured, he'll probably act sane! Kurt deserves better than this, they took a life, now it's all the B.S. and deals, and kurt will never have his justice. Sick of the whole dang thing. where is the justice for the family, they've been treating Richard like a king from day one.

Your right Kurt's murderers will never have to pay for what they did to him, I live with this everyday knowing they've gotten away with First Degree Premeditated Murder not to mention armed robbery.

Has there been a final adjudication in this murder case? Has anyone gone to trial or entered into a plea agreement. This whole situation is so terribly sad especially due to the fact that so many young lives have been wasted. I got a lump in my throat when I read your post that the murderers will never have to pay for what they did so I was curious what that meant. Would appreciate an update . Thank you so much. My thoughts and prayers remain with your family. No one deserves to die that way.

Ben Morgan the one that murdered Kurt, plead guilty to manslaughter ,9 years in prison and 5 years probation.
Vinci Kelley the one that organized it all,plead guilty to accessory after the fact and some dope charges got 5 years and 5 years probation.
Richard is still pending.

None of them have any remorse for murdering Kurt.

Ben has served roughly 4 yrs and only got 3 1/2 yrs tacked on, so for the 9 yrs he only serves 80 %, I don't think RIchard will be found competant to stand trial, that's pending, It sickens me about the whole thing, Kurt did not deserve any of it. You just never know these days, If it were me that did it, I'd never see the daylight again. Goes to show you how stupid the judicial system is.
Very sad

It's probably more Richard and his crap rather than the system, He had a deal, he would only have to serve 20 yrs for his testimony, but he decided to do illegal drugs, overdose at least 3 times, fry his brain, get in a bad car wreck in the middle of drug city, God knows what he was doing there, and Like I said if the DA's office would have arrested him and locked him after his first drug overdose on ILLEGAL drugs, he wouldn't be in the hospital for the criminally insane now and everyone would be serving time, but the judge decided to give him 90 days to get his affairs in order instead of shipping him off ro prison and see what happened. This all just makes me so ill. unbelievable!!!!! I sadly miss my friend lucky.

NO, Richard would have only gotten 20 yrs if he would have done the right thing, now he's in the criminally insane hospital and after his competancy hearing in Sept, we should know what his fate will be. He may be in there forever, who knows. Since he didn't testify against Ben, his confession counts only against him. if that makes any sence.

I'm so sorry Mr K, I don't know how you do it. the other day i heard somone laugh like Kurt and it made me smile, when i hear someone say "aight" like he did or hear a song he liked, i try to hold onto the memory and try to remember when we heard it and how he sang it outloud. I miss my friend so much.

I'm sure the baby is already hooked on Heroin, she is so stupid. She is the person who I'm sure got the other two involved in killing Kurt. In the end.....God will prevail and they will get whats coming to them. They just think they got away with it. Every dog has his day!
