SORRENTO - Sheriff's deputies said a Baton Rouge man has been arrested in connection with a murder earlier this month in Sorrento.

Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley said Calvin "Dirt" Williams, 37, surrendered to U. S. Marshals in Baton Rouge. He was wanted for second-degree murder in the death of Gerald "Butta" Wilkins.

Wiley said Wilkins was found shot to death, "execution style," on the side of the road in Sorrento on Jan. 12. Investigators arrested Cecil Beams of Baton Rouge in connection with the murder last week, but had been searching for Williams.

Williams and Beals both have extension criminal records, and Wiley earlier dubbed the three men "ZIP code thugs" connected with crime in Baton Rouge. Authorities said Williams has been arrested for murder, attempted murder, robbery, armed robbery and drug charges. Beals had also been arrested for burglary, theft and forgery.

Wiley said additional arrests in this investigation may be possible.
