One of the two men wanted in connection with a June slaying on Fall Street surrendered to police Wednesday, authorities said.
Desmond Jamar Henry, 22, of 1600 Cactus Drive, turned himself in to police after news organizations reported he was wanted, said Shawn Caldwell, a Lake Charles police spokesman.
According to Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office records, Henry was arrested at the Sheriff’s Office by Lake Charles police and was booked into the parish jail at 8 p.m.
He was charged with first-degree murder in the June 25 shooting death of 31-year-old Domingo Elizalde MiJangos at 734 Fall St. Henry also faces a conspiracy to distribute marijuana count, Caldwell said.
His bond was set at $334,500.
Authorities are still seeking Douglas Lawrence Clifton, 27, of Arizona, in connection with the case.
Police Chief Don Dixon said at a news conference Wednesday that the slaying was part of a “drug rip-off.”
He announced four arrests at the news conference: Justin Jamar Duncan, 23, of 2402 E. Mill St., and Devontea Deon Fontenot, 20, of 1828 3rd St., charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to distribute marijuana; Sade Jacob, 22, of 122 Garden St. in Sulphur, charged with accessory after the fact; and Krisjuana C. Bellow, 19, of 912 Shady Lane, charged with obstruction of justice.
