BATON ROUGE – One of two suspects in a home invasion and murder earlier this week has been arrested.

Carl Smith, 32, faces principal to murder and home invasion charges. Smith was booked into jail overnight.

Investigators said Smith and an unknown shooter forced their way into a home on Ritterman Avenue last weekend where  Juan Montgomery, 37, was shot to death. Smith and the shooter left the house in Smith's girlfriend’s car. An eyewitness gave police the license plate number and police were able to track Smith down.

Montgomery’s wife watched the entire attack, police wrote in arrest documents obtained by WBRZ Saturday morning.

Police did not have information on the shooter.

The suspects and the victim knew each other, police said.
