DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (WVLA) – (5/29/19) Sheriff Jason Ard says 43-year-old Kevin Dukes of Baton Rouge is charged with second degree murder in the death of 38-year-old Fermin Pecina. 

Pecina’s body was found on August 10, 2018 on Hood Road near the intersection of Hunting Club Road in Denham Springs.

Ard says Pecina was from Texas and had been in the Baton Rouge area for a few weeks before his death. 

Ard says, ‘We never give up. We keep pushing. We follow the evidence. And, that is what led to this new development. A motive is still unclear. But, these veteran detectives are continuing to look at and examine all the facts of this case.’

This investigation continues.
