2 suspects in Louisiana murder arrested in MS

GRETNA, LA (AP) - Two suspects in the murder last week of a 26-year-old woman, whose body was found on a gravel road in Avondale, have been arrested in Mississippi.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand says 51-year-old Curtis Kyles and 25-year-old Chicwanda Forbes, both of New Orleans, were arrested late Thursday by members of the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force at a home in the south-central town of Bassfield, 25 miles northwest of Hattiesburg.

Normand said Friday that both suspects were taken into custody without incident and booked as fugitives from Jefferson Parish.

He says they also will face one count each of first-degree murder and one count each of second-degree kidnapping. Normand says each waived extradition.

Arrangements, he says, are being made to return them to Louisiana.
