She was in the passenger seat of a vehicle and Evans was the driver, police said. The victims were found along LSU Ag Road off La. 30 around 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 28.

Police arrested Jaylon Brown, 21, of Baton Rouge, on Friday and the counts against him were upgraded the following day when Evans died, St. Gabriel Police Chief Kevin Ambeau said Saturday.

Brown now faces two counts of second-degree murder.
