Montana murder defendant charged with threatening witnesses

MISSOULA – The man accused of killing 24-year-old Cassandra Harris of Ronan is back in jail and facing new charges, including accusations that he’s been threatening witnesses in the case.

Joseph Parizeau is accused of killing Harris in June. Prosecutors in Lake County say he originally told police that Harris died while trying to get back into his vehicle while it was moving.

He will now face three counts of tampering with a witness.

Prosecutors accuse him of threatening the three other people who were there the night Harris died, saying if they didn’t repeat his story about how she was killed, bad things would happen to them.

He is back in jail now after the court determined an earlier bond amount was too low.

His new bond amount is set at $150,000. His next court date is Dec. 17.
