Homicide suspect Jacoby Maize

Firefighters found the body of Justin Hendricks Jr. on the floor of his burning Old Jefferson home on April 26. The coroner's office determined he had been shot.

Authorities say a Kenner man shot and killed Justin Hendricks Jr. during the early morning hours of April 26, then left his body on the floor of his Old Jefferson home and set it ablaze.

Jacoby Maize, 32, of 301 Clemson St., was booked Wednesday with second degree murder, said Sgt. Larry Dyess, spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.

Firefighters dispatched to extinguish Hendricks' fully-engulfed home at 112 Maine St. found his body near the back door of the house at about 4:30 a.m.

The coroner's office later determined that Hendricks had died of a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Neighbors described hearing an argument minutes before the blaze broke out.

Homicide detective Rhonda Goff identified Maize as a suspect after conducting interviews Dyess said.

No other suspects are being sought.

Maize and Hendricks were "acquaintances," but Dyess had not other details on their relationship to one another.

He also had no information about the motive for the shooting.

Maize was being held Thursday at the Jefferson Paris Correctional Center on a $750,000 bond.

State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said the blaze was determined to be an arson and charges against Maize are being pursued.

GRETNA, La. - A man convicted of fatally shooting a witness and then burning his home to cover up the crime was sentenced to 55 years in prison Monday, according to the Jefferson Parish district attorney's office.

Jacoby Maize was sentenced in court for shooting Justin Hendricks Jr. in his Old Jefferson home on April 25, 2011.

Maize was convicted after prosecutors said he shot Hendricks, after Hendricks called 911 while witnessing Maize pistol-whipping his wife.

Justin Hendricks Sr., the father of the victim, gave an impact statement saying that he had waited five years for the day he could confront his son's killer in court.

Hendricks Sr. said his son bravely called 911 to report what he saw, putting himself in danger.

"Did he think his life was in peril?" Dr. Hendricks was asked. “Yes, but he did it anyway.”

Hendricks was emotional during the testimony, crying from the witness stand as Maize chuckled, according to a spokesman for the district attorney's office.
