Suspect in La. dismemberment moved from fed lockup
NEW ORLEANS - A man charged in the 2012 death and dismemberment of a Bourbon Street strip club dancer is awaiting extradition to Louisiana after completing a federal prison term.
Forty-one-year-old Terry Speaks was released Tuesday from a federal lockup in New York, where he was serving time for a North Carolina sex-offense unrelated to the Louisiana case. He was taken to the Orange County, New York, jail, where a hearing date had not yet been set.
Speaks and his alleged accomplice, 30-year-old Margaret Sanchez, were indicted in August in Jefferson Parish on charges of second-degree murder, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice in the death of 22-year-old Jaren Lockhart. Parts of Lockhart's body washed ashore in Mississippi in 2012. Sanchez was arrested by Kenner police earlier this year.
