Lil BoosieLouisiana rapper Lil Boosie was indicted on first degree murder charges on Thursday (June 17), stemming from an incident in October that ended with one man dead.

Boosie (real name: Torrance Hatch) was one of three men charged in the incident, according to Louisiana CBS News affiliate WAFB.

In addition to the murder wrap, the rapper and two associates were also indicted on multiple drug-possession charges -- including possession with the intent to deliver (PIWD) charges, three counts of conspiracy to commit PWITD narcotics, and two counts of conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution.

Boosie was allegedly in possession of ecstasy, codeine and marijuana.

According to reports, the rapper and the two men fired shots into the home of 35-year-old Terry Boyd, which resulted in his death in October 2009.

A district attorney said the death penalty was not out of the question in the case.

Currently, the rapper is in jail. In November, Boosie was ordered to prison and expected to serve one year after he was found in violation of his probation. He was taken into custody after authorities discovered Boosie was leaving his house during home confinement.

Prior to his imprisonment, the rapper was facing jail time after he reached a plea deal on a previous drug rap.

Boosie was sentenced to two years in jail in September, as part of a deal in exchange for a guilty plea, which helped him avoid a 10 year sentence.

It was unknown at press time when he's due in court for the new murder charges.
