3 Baton Rouge residents jailed for helping fugitive
BATON ROUGE - Three Baton Rouge residents who allegedly helped a fugitive avoid police have been arrested.
Baton Rouge police say 80-year-old Emma Davis Ellison, 53-year-old Helen Andrea Spencer and 63-year-old John H. Burris allowed 32-year-old Joshua Spencer to use their phones to look for other places to stay and gave him money to help elude capture. Each was arrested Thursday on a count of accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder. Bond was set at $20,000.
It was unknown if any of them was represented by an attorney.
The Advocate reports police have not indicated the relationship between the three and the fugitive.
