A jury convicts one man and deadlocks on another over the armed robbery of a Saint Landry Parish convenience store.
Ronald James Doomes of Ville Platte is convicted. The other man, Arinkis Orlandeze Jones, also of Ville Platte, will be re-tried later this month. The two are accused as part of the federal government’s project Safe Neighborhoods Program.
Doomes will be sentenced in November and faces a maximum of life in prison for carrying a gun during a crime of violence.
