RONAN – The man accused of killing 24-year-old Cassandra Harris of Ronan is back in jail and is facing some new charges, including accusations that he’s been threatening witnesses in the case.
Joseph Parizeau is accused of killing Harris back in June. Prosecutors in Lake County say he originally told police that Harris died while trying to get back into his vehicle while it was moving.
But prosecutors accuse him of threatening the three other people who were there the night Harris died, saying if they didn’t repeat his story about how she was killed, bad things would happen to them.
He will now face three counts of tampering with a witness.
He is back in jail right now after the courts determined an earlier bond amount was too low.
His new bond amount is set at $150,000. His next trial date is set for Dec. 17.
