Chiasson was arrested in August 2021 and charged with the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Williams.

According to WDSU, in August 2021, Williams was asleep when Chiasson fatally shot her in the Marrero home they were sharing with her 11-year-old son.

The boy was present in the residence at the time of the murder.


The couple reportedly had broken up but Williams, who worked as a physical therapist, was letting Chiasson stay with her while he tried to find a job, family said.

Chiasson’s trial started in the morning on July 5, but during testimony, the defendant’s attorney said his client had decided to plead guilty to the charges against him.
