Two men arrested in February on charges related to the shooting death of a La Grange man are now indicted.  Raymond M. Carrion II, 28, and Jason E. Parr, 25, are indicted on a number of charges, including wanton endangerment, burglary and murder for the death of 33-year-old James E. Bailey at a La Grange apartment complex Feb. 1. With assistance from Oldham County Police Department, Kentucky State Police and Louisville Metro Police, LPD arrested Parr and Carrion Feb. 4, as a result of the investigation. Commonwealth Attorney Barry Moore said Carrion has been arraigned and will appear before the court for a pretrial conference June 4. He said Parr will be arraigned today (Thursday). Carrion is indicted for complicity to murder, first-degree complicity to burglary, two counts first-degree complicity to wanton endangerment and second-degree persistent felony offense.
