HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A Louisiana arrest report is providing new details about how Jaren Lockhart was killed and who was involved.

WLOX News has obtained the arrest report for Margaret Sanchez, who was taken into custody Wednesday morning in Metairie, LA. The report details how in June 2012 Lockhart's body was cut apart and swatches of tattooed skin were sliced off in an attempt to prevent her from being identified. It said she died from a stab wound to the heart.

The report said Terry Speaks, the other prime suspect in the murder case, provided information that he and Sanchez had killed a girl in Louisiana, cut up her body, and dumped it in a body of water. It wasn't clear who Speaks told this information to, and so far he has not been charged in this crime. He's currently in a New York prison for failing to register as a sex offender.

Sanchez is charged with second degree murder and obstruction of justice. The arrest report said she and Speaks met Lockhart at a Bourbon Street bar where the victim worked as a dancer. It said she left with the couple after they offered to pay her to join them for a party/sexual encounter.
