A Caddo Parish jury today found a Caddo Parish man guilty on two counts of manslaughter.

Roderick Scott was charged with two counts of second degree murder in 2012 deaths of Stuart Meyers, 29, and Leslie Moss, 27, but the jury decided on the lesser charges of manslaughter.


The deaths were the result of a domestic disturbance at Meyers and Moss’ Mooringsport home that involved Scott, his girlfriend, Meyers’ mother, Meyers and Moss. He was accused of shooting Meyers in the face and beating Moss to death with a gun.


Caddo Parish Assistant District Attorneys Geya Prudhome and Kelvin Rogers prosecuted the case, and David McClatchey was defense attorney.


Each count of manslaughter is punishable by up to 40 years at hard labor; second degree murder carries with it mandatory life in prison without possibility of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
