A Baton Rouge grand jury has indicted a man accused of shooting and killing a woman last year during a domestic dispute.

Daniel Ross White, 37, was indicted Feb. 22 on charges of second-degree murder and illegal use of weapons or dangerous instrumentalities, according to 19th Judicial District Court records.

The indictment stems from an Oct. 29 incident in the 3100 block of Jackson Avenue that left 39-year-old Leticia Elliot dead, Baton Rouge police said. Investigators say White shot Elliot during a “domestic incident” in the Mid City North residence. Elliot was rushed to a hospital, where she died one day later from the gunshot wound.

White remained jailed at the parish prison awaiting trial Thursday, booking records showed. He faces a mandatory life sentence if convicted of the murder indictment. 

White pleaded not guilty to all charges Wednesday when he appeared in court for an arraignment, court records indicate. District Judge Brad Myers, who is presiding over the case, set White’s court date for May 9.
