PORT ALLEN - Deputies took two people into custody, one of them a suspect in a Lafayette double homicide, after they were found at a motel in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

According to the West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, detectives with the Lafayette Police Department told WBRSO around 3 a.m. Tuesday that a suspect wanted for a double homicide was believed to be in Motel 6 on I-10 Frontage Road in Port Allen.
