NEW ORLEANS - The U. S. Marshals Service said they caught up with a third person today charged in connection with a murder in Addis.

Marshals arrested Corey Knox in New Orleans Thursday. Investigators considered him the "most dangerous" of the three people suspected of killing Corey Kitts, who was found shot execution-style in 2010.

Authorities previously arrested Kitts' wife, Monique Kitts, as well as Karl Howard. All three were indicted on first-degree murder and criminal conspiracy charges.

Investigators believe Monique Kitts was having an affair, and a lack of money may have prompted the murder. Sources told News 2 that Corey Kitts had a large life insurance policy.

Marshals transported Knox to Baton Rouge, where he will be transferred into West Baton Rouge authorities' custody.
