KENNER, LA (WLOX) -

One of the two suspects in the gruesome murder of Jaren Lockhart has been returned to Louisiana. WLOX News has learned Terry Speaks was extradited from an Orange County jail in New York on Wednesday.

Speaks is charged with the 2012 dismemberment and murder of Lockhart. As we've reported, Speaks has been in New York and North Carolina prisons for failing to register as a sex offender.

According to officials with the Kenner Police Department, Speaks is scheduled to appear before a Jefferson Parish judge later this week.

Both Speaks and Margaret Sanchez were indicted earlier this year. They're accused of killing and dismembering the 22-year-old Bourbon Street dancer in 2012.

Several of Lockhart's body parts washed ashore in Hancock County, leading investigators to believe she was dumped from the Bay St. Louis Bridge.

Margaret Sanchez is also charged with second degree murder in this case.
