BR murder suspect extradited from Georgia
BATON ROUGE - Police booked the suspect in a deadly shooting from earlier this year into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail after he was extradited from Georgia.
A BRPD spokesperson said 31-year-old Brandon White faces charges of first degree murder in connection with the May 9 shooting.
Investigators said White killed 22-year-old Austin Stewart during an armed robbery on Swart Street. U. S. Marshals found White and arrested him in July in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
On Friday, Stewart was extradited to Baton Rouge and charged with Stewart's murder.
Police said they also arrested 26-year-old Antonio Switzer for being an accessory to first-degree murder and accessory to armed robbery.
