THIBODAUX, Louisiana — Attorneys for a man charged with first-degree murder in the 2012 stabbings of a Lockport woman and her two daughters are requesting a hearing before the Louisiana Supreme Court regarding their client's statements to investigators.

Lafourche Parish Assistant District Attorney Joe Soignet tells The Daily Comet (http://bit.ly/1DGI3I0) the New Orleans-based Capital Defense Project of Southeast Louisiana filed a motion to suppress David Brown's statements.

The 37-year-old Brown is accused of killing 29-year-old Jacquelin Nieves and her daughters, 7-year-old Gabriela and 1-year-old Izabela, on Nov. 4, 2012. He also is accused of raping Jacquelin and Gabriela and setting the family's apartment on fire.

Brown's trial is set to begin Sept. 14 in state District Judge John LeBlanc's courtroom.
