The trail against Shane Foster, son of KKK member and accused killer Raymond "Chuck" Foster, has been postponed again. No new trail date has been set. Shane Foster is said to have been of a reduced intelligence for most of his life, following a car accident injury at the age of 4. Shane Foster stands on the charges obstruction of justice.

"Shane Foster has a brain injury from being hit by a car when he was 4 years old, his mother says. Aged 20 at the time of Lynch's murder, he has the mental capacity of a child of 7 or 8, she says. "Shane, he forgets a lot. My son didn't do anything wrong. [Chuck] has no right doing this to my son. He makes me sick to my stomach." In April, a judge agreed, ruling that Shane Foster was not currently competent to stand trial." -- excerpt South Poverty Law Center - Intelligence Report - Issue 134

Raymond Chuck Foster stands accused of second-degree murder with an expected trail to begin April 5, 2010.

Both men are charged in regards to the 2008 murder of Cynthia Lynch during a Sons of Dixie Brotherhood KKK initiation ceremony. Cynthia Lynch is believed by detectives to have attempted to back out of the initiation.

The shrimp boil clan party earlier that day had turned violent when Raymond "Chuck" Foster smashed a pistol across his son's face. Although police were called at the time of the earlier violence by a friend of the younger Foster, they never responded to the call to the trailer the Foster's rented from Thomas Anderson Jr., a lieutenant with the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office.
