Prentiss Man Stays In Jail 

At his bail hearing a judge ordered Joseph Dumas (46) to be held until his case goes to trial.

Dumas is accused of shooting to death Mario Litterio of Prentiss. According to court documents, Dumas asked Litterio to help him track a deer.

Those documents state that while they were walking in the woods, Dumas shot Litterio with a pistol, pulling the trigger until he emptied the gun.

The court records go on to say Dumas then shot Litterio with a rifle, and left the body in the woods.

Police say Dumas has confessed to the crime, but hasn’t told them why he did it.

According to police Dumas did say he was drunk and high on cocaine at the time.
