The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's office has captured a wanted man charged with second degree murder, but is still searching for another man they consider armed and dangerous.

 Major Mackie Jr., of 272 St. Charles Street in New Sarpy, was wanted on the charge of attempted second degree murder. On March 8, Mackie got into an altercation with another man in New Sarpy, and during the altercation, he allegedly stabbed the victim in his arm and throat.

The fight began when the two men got into an argument while eating dinner. The other man punched Mackie in the face and knocked him unconscious. When Mackie came to later, he grabbed a steak knife and forced the man to flee the home.
A second confrontation occurred outside of the home, with Mackie reportedly stabbing the man several times on the arm before cutting his throat.

Mackie then fled the scene before turning himself in on March 27, a day after the Sheriff's Office sent out a wanted poster asking residents to be on the lookout for him.

The other man is Brandon J. Williams, of 242 Post Street in Killona, and he is wanted on a burglary charge. Williams allegedly broke into a vehicle at the Hahnville Boat Launch and stole a shot gun, binoculars and assorted I.D. cards.
He has been arrested several times in the past for burglary, narcotics charges and illegal possession of weapons.

Williams should be considered armed and dangerous.

The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office says Williams is 25-years-old and is approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall. He weighs 155 pounds and has a fair complexion with a medium build.
