Murder suspect booked into jail overnight
BATON ROUGE - A 19-year-old was booked into jail overnight on murder charges connected to the shooting death two years ago.
Deandre Anthony was arrested after police located a witness to the shooting on Johnson Street. The witness identified Anthony in a line-up, police wrote in arrest documents filed at the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail.
Investigators believe Anthony shot and killed Cornell Cummings while Cummings was standing in the front yard of a house on Johnson Street, near Highland Road in Old South Baton Rouge, in September 2014. Cummings died about three months later.
Police said it appears Cummings was attacked by two people, but the arrest information only has details about Anthony's alleged role in the crime.
