AMITE - A Mississippi man and his girlfriend have been arrested in the shooting death of a man found in a car parked alongside Interstate 55.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office said deputies Friday arrested 36-year-old Rodney Reynold, of Tylertown, Mississippi, on charges of second-degree murder and obstruction of justice. He's accused in the death of 35-year-old Alphonse Reid, whose body was found March 15. He died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The Advocate reports Reynold's girlfriend, 43-year-old Mary Mayeaux, also of Tylertown, was arrested on charges of accessory after the fact to second-degree murder, accessory after the fact to obstruction of justice and failure to report a felony.

It was unknown if either suspect has an attorney.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto says details about a motive have not been released.
