Lafayette man sentenced to prison for vehicular homicide


A 27-year-old Lafayette man was sentenced Monday to prison for killing an Alabama man in 2013.

Casey Robertson was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for the conviction of vehicular homicide and OWI in the death of Travis Baker.

According to J. N. Prather, Jr., Assistant District Attorney, the charges stem from an automobile crash on March 15, 2013, at the intersection of Evangeline Thruway and Kaliste Saloom Road.

Robertson ran a red light and collided with a vehicle being driven by Baker. Baker was killed on impact.

Robertson’s blood alcohol level was determined to be .20 which is more than twice the legal limit of .08.
