Jazz Fest murder defendant found guilty in 2004 death of Daniel Breaux | NOLA.com

Verdict

District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro talks to reporters Monday on the steps of Orleans Parish District Court, with Daniel Breaux's family at hand, after a jury returned a guilty verdict against John Duncan.

John Duncan murdered a Houma man in Mid-City near the New Orleans Heritage and Jazz Festival in 2004, putting a bullet through the back of his skull after the music fan shrugged off the teen's attempt to rob him of his wallet, an Orleans Parish jury concluded Monday after a week-long trial. Duncan, 20, faces imprisonment up to age 31 for the second-degree murder of Daniel Breaux, 57, because he was only 14 at the time of the killing.
