Man convicted of shooting St. Charles deputy due in court

ST. CHARLES PARISH, LA (WVUE) - A pre-sentencing hearing is scheduled Tuesday for the man convicted of shooting a St. Charles Parish corporal directing traffic in a school zone.

Tuesday's hearing for John Paul Devillier comes ahead of his sentencing scheduled for next Tuesday.

A jury found Devillier guilty of attempted murder for the April 2015 shooting of Corporal Burt Hazeltine.

Prosecutors said Devillier became angry after Hazeltine refused to stop traffic for him on Highway 90.

Hazeltine survived being shot in the arm, chest, and eye.
