5-Year-Old Boy May Have Been Burned Alive

Coushatta, LA (AHN) - Investigators believe that a 5-year-old boy, who had been snatched and abducted in a "vendetta" against his mother, may have been burned alive. The charred body of the small boy was found in an abandoned home in northwestern Louisiana's Red River Parish.
According to investigators, Corinthian Houston had been kidnapped from his mother's home in Natchitoches about 9 p.m. Saturday and his body was found the following morning. They have since detained 26-year-old Terrence Carter, in connection with kidnapping and killing.
Sheriff Johnny Ray Norman said Monday that Carter was held without bond and in isolation until his arraignment, likely Wednesday because of the Independence Day holiday.
Detailing the available information, Norman said that Carter was arrested after the boy's body was found. It was determined that abduction and the killing followed a feud between Carter and boy's mother.
"It's a useless deal - just a vendetta, I guess you'd call it," Norman said. "He was trying to get back at his girlfriend," he said.
Houston was found tied to a leather chair with an electrical cord wrapped around his neck. However, he was not believed to have been strangled. An autopsy was pending.
The boy's body was reportedly discovered by one of Carter's brothers, and their mother called police.
George Herring III, also of Coushatta and a co-worker of Carter, were arrested on kidnapping warrants Sunday, and Carter was booked on a count of first-degree murder,
Natchitoches police Lt. Chris Stanfield said.
Norman said of Herring, "Right now, all they can tell he did was furnish a vehicle used for the kidnapping. We can't tie him to the murder."Molly Weasley makes Chuck Norris eat his vegetables.
