One of the suspects in the murder of a French Quarter dancer will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office says Margaret Sanchez has been moved to Rosenblum Mental Health Center in Hammond.

She had been in the Tangipahoa Parish Jail.

In addition, Sanchez has also been charged with harboring a sex offender.  Her boyfriend, Terry Speaks, is in federal custody for failing to register as a sex offender in North Carolina.

Detectives believe Sanchez and Speaks were the last people to see Jaren Lockhart alive.

Neither Sanchez or Speaks has been charged with Lockhart's murder.
