A second man wanted in the June stabbing death of Cory Nicholas Sonnier in St. Martin Parish was arrested late Monday in Cook County, Ga., authorities said Tuesday.
David James Anderson was wanted on a count of obstruction of justice to first-degree murder in Sonnier’s death, the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
Sonnier’s body was discovered at the Lake Martin Boat Landing on June 24.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Corey Britt said Anderson surrendered to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office at 11:30 p.m. Monday.
Anderson, 19, and Patrick Paul George, 41, both of Lafayette, were wanted in Sonnier’s killing, authorities said.
George was arrested July 7 in Valdosta, Ga., in Lowndes County, which neighbors Cook County, Britt said.
When authorities found George, who was hiding out with his half-sister, George claimed his name was Paul Williams, according to a U.S. Marshals Service news release.
During George’s arrest, authorities also found 8.56 pounds of marijuana and a firearm, the release said.
The U.S. Marshals Service knew Anderson was around, “but he wasn’t in the apartment during (George’s) arrest,” Britt said.
The St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office has since extradited George to Louisiana on one count of obstruction of justice to first-degree murder, the Sheriff’s Office said in a release.
