A document filed this week in the Lafayette Parish courthouse requests a civil suit filed against a murder suspect be addressed after his criminal trial.
Seth Fontenot is accused of shooting three teenagers, and killing one of them in February of 2013, while they were riding by his Green Meadow Drive home.
The parents of 15-year-old Austin Rivault are seeking $50,000 in a civil suit for what they call the wrongful shooting death of their son.
They're suing not only Fontenot, but also his parents, for they say, failing to supervise him.
The district attorney's office says the civil case could interfere with the prosecution of their criminal case and is asking it be pushed back until after the September trial date.
