The status conference scheduled today for the 15-year-old accused of killing a Barksdale Airman last September has been postponed until April.

Alonzo Wilson, who, along with 18-year-old Jareona Crosby, is charged with 2nd Degree Murder in the Sept. 25, 2018, death of Joshua Kidd, was in Bossier District Court this morning for the conference, but his attorney said the prosecution’s evidence against his client has not been forthcoming.

Although Wilson is only 15, Bossier District Attorney Schuyler Marvin has elected to try him as an adult.

Originally, Randall Fish, of the Bossier Parish Public Defender’s office was appointed to represent both defendants, but in December, Bossier attorney Larrion Hillman was appointed conflict council, and will represent Wilson.

Conviction of 2nd Degree Murder carries with it a sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.

However, because Wilson is only 15, he will be eligible for parole after 25 years providing he passes a number of stringent requirements.
