A man accused in two homicides was charged this week with asking friends to beat, bribe, intimidate or kill the witnesses who planned to testify against him at his murder trials.

The East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney’s Office issued a true bill against Erick Scott, 23, charging him with solicitation for first-degree murder and conspiracy to injure or intimidate witnesses after an investigation into his jailhouse phone calls and letters.

Scott has been in Parish Prison since 2012 awaiting trial in the October 2011 shooting death of Justice Thompson and the February 2012 shooting death of Kevin “Gus” Johnson, 21. He has been charged with second-degree murder in both cases. Scott also has been charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder in a 2011 armed robbery, records show.
