Extradition hearing scheduled for today in Duplantier murder case
BATON ROUGE- One of the men accused of murdering a Baton Rouge couple is due in court today for an extradition hearing.
Ernesto Alonso was arrested in Hollywood, Florida last month in connection to the deaths of Denis and Suzanne Duplantier. He's currently being held in Florida, but District Attorney Hillar Moore has asked to have him extradited back to Louisiana to face charges.
Authorities arrested a second man in connection to the Duplantier's murder on Wednesday. Baton Rouge police say Frank Garcia was picked up in Hollywood, Florida. Police haven't released any other details about the arrest at this time, but more information could be released later today.
