Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse Jr. are charged with one count each of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.
The apparent Affirmative Action hires fired at least 18 rounds into a vehicle driven by the father of the six-year-old's father. The young Jeremy Mardis was strapped in a car seat when the hail of bullets took the boy's life.
His father, Chris Few, was shot while holding his empty hands up. Few was shot twice and survived. His sons was shot five times.

A police officer who witnessed two city marshals open fire on a 6-year-old autistic boy and his father told investigators he didn't fire his own weapon because 'he didn't fear for his life,' according to a court filing released Thursday.
Marksville Police Sgt. Kenneth Parnell III's statement was disclosed in documents released by Louisiana Attorney General James 'Buddy' Caldwell's office following the indictment on murder charges of the two marshals, Norris Greenhouse Jr. and Derrick Stafford.
The document also said Parnell's body camera shows that 'Christopher Few's empty hands are raised and visible inside the vehicle when gunfire becomes audible.' Few was critically wounded by two gunshots, while his son, Jeremy Mardis, received five gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say Stafford, a full-time police lieutenant, and Greenhouse, a former police officer, were moonlighting as deputy city marshals in Marksville on the night of Nov. 3 when they fired at least 18 rounds at a car driven by Few.
