It took less than two hours Wednesday, November 16, 2016, for a Caddo Parish jury to determine that a Shreveport man killed his brother four years ago.
The eight-woman, three-man jury returned a verdict of guilty of second-degree murder against Randy Dewayne Anderson, 26, in the December 2, 2012 slaying of Timothy Anderson, 41 at the time of his death.
Randy Anderson, who had been adopted as an infant and raised alongside his older brother, shot Timothy Anderson seven times with a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun inside the family home on Dilg League Drive. Their mother discovered her elder son’s body in his bedroom. Randy Anderson eluded capture for 18 hours before he finally was apprehended in Bossier City. Investigators never established a motive for the killing.
Anderson will return to face Caddo District Judge Katherine Dorroh December 1, 2016, for formal sentencing. The statutory penalty for second-degree murder is life in prion without probation, parole or reduction of sentence.
Caddo Parish Assistant District Attorneys Jason Waltman and Treneshia Hill prosecuted the case. Anderson was represented by David McClatchey.17
