Fred got his life together?!? Are you kidding me, if thats the case then why in the hell was he involved with this mess.....such a load of crap!!
He got his life together, but he took the life of another man....who a had kid also!! Stop taking up for this man....if they were "warned" ahead of time then why didn't they get everyone out of the house, why didn't they leave....I tell you why, because they were instigating this crap from the beginning! They didn't just "protect" themselves, they not only shot and killed one man, but they also shot and then beat another man....how low is that!! This is pathetic....and second of all...if you don't like anyone on here talking about Fred and this situation then don't visit this website, because thats what its here for...opinions :)
Blady what is your name and how are you involved with any of these families You seem to know or think you know a lot about what happened I am Fred's uncle and I don't see nor hear from the family very much but I believe it was self defense because these boys called and said they were coming to his house and a man has to stand up and fight for his life.

Fred is a murderer and everyone knows it. Justice will prevail and he will be punished.They all need to be drug tested and kids taken away and maybe they'll learn their lesson.Maybe their house should be raided.
How can you say Fred is a murderer Trent was shot with a pistol Fred had a shotgun one of Trent's friends shot him so don't talk what you don't know. They should have not been there in the first place fighting over a girl is not necessary women out number men 3 to 1 and this was Fred's wife they were fighting over.

For every action there is consequence, good or bad. I didn't know there were drugs involved, but now that I do, how is drugs around children protecting your family? If you are involved in drugs, violence will be involved, it comes along with it.-On the other note, I respect Sassy Lady for taking in her grand children and providing them a much better and stable life. No child should be around all of that mess. I am a mother of two and I be damn if i allow anyone to subject my children to drugs. They shouldn't have been anywhere near those babies. God bless you Sassy Lady, you are a saint.
It wasn't about drugs it was about one of these boys messing around with Fred's wife Erin who can't seem to keep her pants on.

Hey, look... I agree that he needs to serve time for what he did, etc. etc. and I absolutely do not agree with the children circumstance. HOWEVER- the grand mother had nothing to do with the mother or father'S decisions. She took the kids in with open arms to give them a better life. I think that is pretty courageous. I know you wouldn't want the kids put into foster care or somewhere where they wouldn't be taken care of right? They are children and didn't know what was going on so therefore I think if the grandmother wants a better life for them and is going to provide it, then she deserves respect for that regardless of whatever else. Not fair to judge her based on her DAUGHTERS faults.
Lastly, This isn't about the children, OR the grandmother. It is about someone getting justice AND serving their time for crime. Stop all the hate, that is whats wrong with the world today. He will get what is deserved for that matter. I understand people are upset and angry. However, forgiveness will bring you all happiness. I will leave with this..
"For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
(Matthew 6:14,15)
"But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
(Matthew 5:44,45)
GOD BLESS YOU.
You say the grandmother is able to raise the children You forget her daughter caused this whole problem in the first place by screwing around on her husband and doing drugs, so maybe this woman should not have my nieces to raise since I don't think she did a good job on her own

so maybe I am going about this the wrong way when I am wrong I say I'm wrong and I guess you can say I'm going by what Morris was like when he was a boy, he was as in past tense nothing like what people are sayin he is now, I just cant believe that he is now what people are sayin, knowing the boy that I knew before was kind hearted and sweet a person who cried real tears a person who was upset after he hurt someone This is who Morris was before yes its been awhile since Morris and I have talked and we all have grown up alot since then and that we have both changed I understand that too, but I do know that no matter what I say or do he will be in jail for a long time if not life. as far as Trents family I do feel terribe for there loss more than anyone knows my full heart goes out to them.
Suzanne don't apologize for what you believe Morris loves Erin and if she hadn't screwed around on him none of this crap would have happened He wanted to fight the boy but instead this guy had to bring an arsenal to Morris's house to kill him, they shot Morris in the head luckily it did not kill him, The boy that was killed was shot with a pistol and Morris had a shotgun He did not kill anyone He is innocent so don't quit believing in him.

Yes, Frank he does...but does that mean killing someone? If he knew they were coming over why were the cops not informed? Why didn't he stay in his house when these "truck loads" of people showed up. If he honestly wanted to protect himself and his family those are the steps he would have taken!

the police from 2 parishes were called 30 minutes before any of this happened and they both said they could do nothing until something happened so lets blame them. And like I said before that boy was killed with handgun fire and my nephew had a shotgun so How could he have killed anyone

If your nephew is so innocent, why did he claim to be the shooter? And why is he going to trail for MURDER, ATTEMPTED MURDER, and numerous other charges?

I cant believe I haven't stumbled upon this site earlier, since I know several of the people personally who were involved in this incident. If anyone reading this can relate to living in a small town, you will know that a good old-fashioned fist fight is something that draws quite a crowd. The boys that went to Fred's house that night were not aware that it was going to be a brawl, and were not prepared for such. If you read the police reports and witness statements, you will clearly see everyone there with Fred admitted to being armed and waiting on the other boys to show up. Once 2 trucks pulled in front of Fred's house, the people who were already there (On Fred's side) began firing guns, and coming out of the woodworks with weapons...(Women included). And to be technical, no one who drove to the cul de sac that night ever stepped a foot onto Fred's property. The boys who were shot were shot in the back, as they were attempting to get back into their vehicles and LEAVE, since they were not aware that this would even involve them...(remember, they were just there to watch). As for the man who was killed, he was not posing a threat to anyone. He hadn't even gotten out of his vehicle good yet. Trent Stewart was killed out of sheer hatefulness; he was made into an example. As for the people who think that he was shot with a pistol, you are wrong. Every single person who was shot that night was shot with buckshot, and every bullet from that shotgun was fired by Morris (FRED) Laiche...If you think I'm wrong, read the reports. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but before you get on some message board talking shit, get your FACTS straight!

Fred is a coward and has always been a coward. I know of multiple situations where he performed cowardly acts. Well it looks as though he and his family are finally going to pay for it. Also, I know there are a few more surprises coming for the extended family. Enjoy prison, all of you. As far as guns, I keep mine loaded for people just like this and wouldn't dream of wasting my energy fighting a piece of shit like Fred. I am involved in investigating this family and have a personal interest in sending every one of them to prison for a long time. What a shame it has taken so long and come to this for something to happen. The family and friends all involved in this may want to step back a bit so as not to get caught up in the legal litigation and punishment upcoming.

This was clearly a case of self-defense. Anyone with half of a half of a half of a brain realizes it. If armed gunmen and assailants drive to another person's house and open fire and begin attacking, then that person has every right to use deadly force to defend themselves. It DOES NOT matter who said what, who started it, what it was about, who did drugs, etc... All that matters is a man had to defend himself from death and/or serious harm. And though I'm very sorry that anyone died, Trent shouldn't have even been there as an aggressor, leaving his child behind to aid in an attempt on another man's life. I'm not saying he deserved to die, but that's what happens when you try to kill another man. If 20 people pulled up in my yard and opened fire on me and my family, I'm grabbing my AK-47 and telling the coroner to bring 20 body bags and a mop.

Plus, Trent was killed by a pistol round. His own buddies were the ones who had pistols. Fred and the other defenders had SHOTGUNS. So Trent was obviously killed by friendly fire, accidentally.

All totally incorrect.

1) Fred didn't even HAVE buckshot. He had bird shot... a mixture of upland game .12-gauge ammo that was scraped up in haste when the aggressors arrived. Trent was killed by a pistol round. The only people who had pistols were his own buddies.

2) Not everyone was armed there. There were quite a few people there, and the only people who were armed were Fred, his mother and his cousin. Most of the other people who were there were HIDING from the gunfire as Trent's buddies fired every which way. They did not have their guns out waiting for the aggressors to show up. They went inside and retrieved their guns once they arrived, themselves armed, and opened fire on Fred, his family and a house full of children. Plus, it does not matter one bit if Fred was waiting outside with a gun. He has every right to do so. If people called me and said they were coming to do me and my family harm, I would be waiting with my gun at the ready.

3) All of those people did NOT go there to watch a "good ol fashion fist fight". There is no such thing as a "good ol fashion fist fight" anymore. This is the 21st century, where people shoot, stab and attack in groups. These ideas of some chivalrous battle of fists are totally outlandish; this isn't 1950. Fred had already been jumped and beaten by Trent's buddies, and then they WENT TO HIS HOUSE to get him AGAIN. This time with GUNS in greater numbers, not only to kill Fred but to kill and injure his friends and family too. They blocked off the road so no one could get in or out, and they DID go onto the property. Anyone with any sense can clearly see that this was a blatant act of lethal aggression against Fred and his friends and family. Whether or not Fred is a good person is irrelevant. He had to defend himself or die. All of those boys who went there knew there was going to be a potentially lethal altercation: after all, they went there with the intent to CREATE such violence.

4) Trent DID pose a threat to Fred and his family. EVERY single person who showed up there, whether they intended to attack or spectate (in reality, they were ALL there to attack) posed a threat. When carloads of people show up with guns, block off the road (AND open fire, on top of that), they are ALL threats.

So bullshit. Did it take you this many years to come up with that shit. Trent didn't deserve to die but that murderer needs to stay behind bars. Throw away the key. Justice was served on a very horrible situation. Grow up and realize the judicial system is there for a reason. To put scumbags away.

You are an idiot! Do yourself a favor. Go to the courthouse, read the public records of this incident, then post your "opinion". This is outlandish jibber. You are talking out of your ass because your mouth knows better. Nobody deserves to die over something as childish and ridiculous as this! If you had your facts straight you'd know Trent wasnt on Fred's property! If you had your facts straight you'd know Trent was shot and died in the truck he arrived in! If you had your facts straight and correct you'd know that the deceased was shot with a shot gun along with the person in the truck with him and two others that were shot! Doesn't matter what type of ammo it was!
