Baton Rouge Police arrested two suspects Sunday morning in the Saturday slaying of a man at a carwash on North Sherwood Forest Boulevard, said Sgt. Don Stone, a Police Department spokesman.
The suspects arrested are Jeanpaul Rene Creppel 34, 12824 Pecos Ave., Central, and Danielle Charie Palermo, 26, same address.
They are accused of killing Jonathan Ellis, 30, 5553 Goodland Drive, Greenwell Springs.
The slaying occurred at about 7 p.m. Saturday when Creppel and Palermo rode together in a brown or maroon colored four-door Pontiac to a carwash on 2389 North Sherwood Forest Blvd., Stone said.
The couple parked in a bay next to Ellis, who was driving a white Chevy pickup truck, Stone said earlier Sunday in a news release.
Shortly thereafter, Creppel shot Ellis, Stone said.
Creppel loaded Ellis’ body into the Pontiac and drove it away, Stone said.
Palermo left the area driving Ellis’ white pickup, Stone said.
About an hour and a half later, Baton Rouge Police received information that the body of a man had been located under a bridge on Black Mud Road in Livingston Parish between Satsuma and Walker, Stone said.
Detectives found the body and identified it at Ellis.
Detectives found both vehicles involved in the shooting after an anonymous caller said they were sitting in Creppel and Palermo’s driveway, Stone said.
Police took the vehicles from the home and arrested the pair around 8 a.m., Stone said.
Creppel and Palermo were booked into Parish Prison on one count each of first-degree murder, illegal use of a weapon and armed robbery.
