KENNER - Police in the New Orleans suburb of Kenner say they have arrested one of the last two people seen with a dancer whose dismembered body washed up on Mississippi beaches two years ago.

Sgt. Brian McGregor confirms that Margaret Sanchez was arrested Wednesday morning at her parents' home in Metairie. He says she will be booked with second-degree murder in the death of Jaren Lockhart.

McGregor's email says Sanchez was arrested by Kenner police, the U.S. Marshal's Gulf Coast Regional Task Force, FBI, and Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.

Lockhart was last seen alive leaving a Bourbon Street strip club with two people on June 6, 2012.

Parts of her body washed up in Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian and Long Beach, Mississippi.

Tattoos helped identify her. She had been stabbed.
