Death of former DA under investigation

LOUISIANA - by Steve W Stewart/KJAS & Rayburn Broadcasting Company 

KJAS News has learned that former Newton County District Attorney Robert Choate is dead.

On Saturday, KJAS News spoke to Caddo Parish Sheriffs Department Investigator Matt Ferguson, who confirmed that Choate was discovered deceased. However, Ferguson said that he could not release specific details about the case, and he emphasized that the investigation is continuing.

Ferguson said the investigation began when deputies were called to a location on, or near U.S. Highway 171 early Friday evening.

Choate was recently in the news when he suddenly resigned from his position in early October, following allegations of misconduct.

Choate was appointed by Governor Rick Perry in July 2010. Following his resignation, Governor Perry appointed Newton attorney Courtney Tracy on October 29th to fill Choates unexpired term.
