Two Louisiana deputy marshals charged with killing a 6-year-old boy and injuring his father in a hail of gunfire will be required to surrender their service firearms and badges if they are able to post $1 million in bail ordered by a judge on Monday. Judge William Bennett set bail for the deputy marshals, Derrick Stafford, 32, and Norris Greenhouse Jr., 23, during a closed hearing at the Avoyelles Parish Jail, hours before the boy's family laid him to rest. Jeremy Mardis, who was autistic, was buckled into the front passenger seat of his father Chris Few's car last week when the two local marshals fired 18 times at the vehicle after chasing it in central Louisiana, state police said.
