BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Arrests have been made on an investigation where a man was found dead near his residence on Thursday morning, September 5, according to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office.
Kevon Williams, 34, of Gonzales has been charged with second degree murder of Mark Heald, 46, and is also charged with witness intimidation.
Additionally, 35-year-old Lelecia Williams of Sumrall Drive is charged with witness intimidation.
Mark Heald, 46, was pronounced dead on the scene when deputies found his body at 10662 Stanley Aubin Lane.
Heald was last seen alive Wednesday evening, arguing over narcotics with a female acquaintance, according to deputies. The woman left Heald and arranged for Kevon Williams to pick her up. Williams allegedly had several other women in the vehicle when she arrived, and Heald allegedly began circling the vehicle, screaming and shouting.
Deputies report that Heald was struck by the front bumper of the vehicle after allegedly blocking it from exiting once Williams began to leave. When Williams drove forward, the strike caused Heald to stumble backward.
Deputies also say Heald allegedly tried again to stand in front of the vehicle to block it from leaving. At this point, Williams allegedly accelerated the vehicle and struck him, causing him to fall onto the hood. Heald became pinned under the vehicle after rolling in front of it.
Kevon Williams place the vehicle in reverse and then fled the scene.
According to the EBRSO, Kevon Williams and Lelecia Williams (no relation) then allegedly told Heald's female acquaintance multiple times that if she revealed anything about the incident to anyone, she would be killed.
According to the Coroner's office, the cause of death from Heald's autopsy report was ruled as blunt force trauma.
Police say both women have been booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
The investigation is ongoing.
