Bogalusa Man Gets 50 Years For Woman’s 2016 Death

District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that Charles Joseph Mixon (43) of Bogalusa pleaded guilty to manslaughter and obstruction of justice in the 2016 shooting death of Christin James whose body was found burned beyond recognition. Keri G. Stewart (43) of Bogalusa, Mixon’s girlfriend at the time, also pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in the killing.
Mixon shot James to death during a confrontation between August 2 and August 3 in 2016 at a house on Shorty Bush Road, just outside Bogalusa, and then attempted to dispose of James’s body. Stewart claimed she was at the house but was not in the room when James was shot. Stewart tried to assist in the cover-up, driving James’ car away from the scene on August 2, but Stewart wrecked the car and was severely injured.
District Judge Alan Zaunbrecher sentenced Mixon to 40 years in prison on the manslaughter charge and 10 years on the obstruction charge, which will be served consecutive to the manslaughter sentence. Stewart was sentenced to 10 years in prison on the obstruction charge.


  1. Both these losers deserve the chair or worse. I how someone takes care of them in jail. The court should hang their head in shame.

  2. They both look crazy as hell. Two psychos. I dont believe she was in another room during a confrontation between her boyfriend and another woman. I'm sure she was right by his side.

  3. This makes me sick to my stomach. They both should've received life with out parole. They took a mother, daughter, sister, cousin,friend and over all incredible person from us. I hope they get every amount of pain coming to them during their time in prison.

    1. It says nothing of the torture that they put Cristin through. It says nothing of what they pay for **as rumor has it*** cutting her up and burning her body...which is why she was hard to determine if it was her or not.
      They should be shot and burned alive.. one watching the other...
      Keri was more than in the other room. I think she shot Cristin in anger. and then Charles got involved and burned her. My opinion. **rumor has it***
