Woman wanted in 2015 New Orleans killing arrested in Texas
NEW ORLEANS- A woman accused in a killing nearly two years ago has been arrested in Houston, the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Department said.
Police say in a news release that Harris County, Texas, sheriff's deputies arrested 24-year-old Shanta Massey on Sunday. The arrest came after New Orleans investigators learned she was in a Houston apartment complex.
Police say they have a warrant for her arrest in the shooting of 25-year-old Jeren Johnson. Johnson was a passenger in a Nissan Altima that ran into a parked Ford truck on Dec. 6, 2015.
Investigators found that the car's driver was wounded and Johnson was dead. Police say the warrant accuses Massey of second-degree murder, which would mean an automatic life sentence if she's charged and convicted.
