Bruce Cofield, 59, and Donald Smart, 49, were fatally shot in September 2017. A Louisiana man on trial for allegedly killing two Black men allegedly searched the internet for information on genocide, Nazi propaganda, white supremacists, and gun silencers in the days before and after the 2017 killings. PEOPLE confirms Kenneth Gleason, 27, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the fatal shootings of Bruce Cofield, 59, and Donald Smart, 49. Gleason’s trial started April 12. Cofield was killed the night of Sept. 12, 2017. Gleason allegedly shot the homeless man as the victim sat at a Baton Rouge bus stop. Two days later, investigators allege Gleason fatally shot Smart, who was walking to work. Police further allege that, before the killings, Gleason shot several rounds into his Black neighbor’s home on Sept. 11, 2017. No one was injured by the gunfire. Gleason was arrested on Sept. 16, 2017, PEOPLE confirms. The Advocate of Baton Rouge and WAFB were in court on Wednesday as prosecutors presented evidence showing Gleason’s alleged internet search history leading up to and after his alleged crimes.
