A Farmerville man led police on a short vehicle chase Tuesday, and after being apprehended, revealed he was enroute to kill two people when the chase began, according to a Union Parish Sheriff’s Office report.
Judge H. Milliken, 42, of Farmerville was booked into the Union Parish Detention Center on charges of attempted second degree murder and multiple traffic charges, the report said.
Narcotics Investigators attempted to stop a Grey Mazda 3 on Marion Highway inside Farmerville city limits after witnessing the vehicle driving erratically, the report said.
According to deputies, the vehicle accelerated and fled from investigators through town and onto La. Highway 2 East.
The vehicle then drove through the grass at the Farmerville Town Hall to avoid deputies before continuing back onto the Highway, the report said.
The chase ended on Highway 2 East near Terral Island Road and Milliken was taken into custody.
According to deputies, two loaded handguns were found on the Mazda’s passenger seat. Milliken allegedly admitted to investigators that he was on the way to kill two people, one in Morehouse Parish and another Ouachita Parish, when the chase began, the report said.
According to officials, Milliken told police that he intended to use the two handguns to commit the murders and gave the names and locations of his planned victims.
When contacted by police, the intended victims confirmed that Milliken had recently shown up to their homes in the early morning hours without permission and had been told to leave.
