WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

A grand jury in West Baton Rouge Parish indicted three people in a two and a half year old murder case.

In February, four suspects were named in the investigation into a murder investigation from 2010. Corey Kitts, 45, of Addis, was found dead in his home July 9, 2010.

Of the four suspects, only three were indicted; his wife Monique Kitts, 43, Karl Howard, 29, and Corey Knox, 28.

According to the Addis Police Department, Corey Kitts was shot three times at point-blank range in his bedroom. Police Chief Ricky Anderson said he believes Kitts was asleep when he was shot.

His wife and daughter reported finding him dead. Reports indicate nothing was stolen from the home.

Deputies are still looking for Howard and Knox.  If you know where they are, call Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP.

All three indicted suspects will be held without bond.
