BATON ROUGE - Police and U. S. Marshals announced today two more people have been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting last year in Baton Rouge.

Cpl. Tommy Stubbs said detectives and marshals arrested Tressie Newberry, 40, and Jennifer Prine, 27, today in connection with the shooting death of Brandon Harris last year.

Marshals arrested Mason Chiapuzio, 19, in Michigan last week after investigators said they determined he shot and killed Harris on April 15, 2012 in Baton Rouge. Stubbs said Newberry and Prine helped him plan the murder, and all three face first degree murder charges.

Newberry and Prine were booked into the parish jail this afternoon. Chiapuzio is still in Michigan awaiting extradition.
