Ingalls Worker Charged With Killing Member Of Car Pool

A welder at Ingalls shipyard is charged with murder after a member of his car-pool was found stabbed to death early Wednesday morning.

Zannie Lovelace drives van of Northrop Grumman employees from Mobile to Pascagoula every day. Mobile Police say Wednesday morning Lovelace stopped to pick up the last member of his carpool, Tobert Williams. That's when police say the two men got into an argument and Lovelace stabbed Williams several times.

Investigators say several of the other passengers got out of the van to help Williams, but two stayed inside and rode with Lovelace to the Pascagoula Shipyard.

Around 11:30, Pascagoula Police arrested Lovelace at the shipyard. He's being held without bond in the Mobile Jail.

Northrop Grumman officials say Lovelace and Williams both worked at the shipyard for 25 years.

Police are still trying to reach the two passengers who stayed in the van to question them about the murder.
