Accused triple murderer Jared Ranguy returns to court
In less than two days, Jared Ranguy, who is accused of killing his mother, sister, and stepfather, could face up to three life sentences of imprisonment. Viewers will recall the gruesome triple murder in November 2012 on Marage Road, Ladyville Village, where Karen Skeen-Vellos, her husband, Richard Vellos, and her daughter, Teena Skeen, lost their lives. Ranguy is believed to have killed his family and hid several blood-stained items in the attic of the house, including a nine-millimeter firearm suspected to be the murder weapon. On Monday, the accused murderer and his attorney, Orson “Oj” Elrington, appeared before Justice Ricardo O’Neil Sandcroft. In court, Elrington requested sentencing indications to determine the extent of sentencing in the case that Ranguy pleads guilty. Justice Sandcroft, after deliberation, then informed Ranguy that he would be sentenced to three life imprisonment terms with the possibility of parole only after serving 40 years if he pleads guilty. The court was then adjourned for this Thursday, when Elrington will indicate whether his client will plead guilty or go to trial.
