CROWLEY, La. (KLFY) — A Rayne man faces a list of charges after he allegedly led law enforcement officials on a high-speed chase through downtown Crowley, and the passenger who was with him has died from her injuries.

Magnon was being sought on multiple warrants, including one count of attempted second-degree murder, 11 counts of simple burglary, two counts of attempted simple burglary, one count of unauthorized use of a moveable, one count of convicted felon in possession of a firearm and two counts of misdemenor theft.
