An arrest has been made in connection with a hit and run crash that killed an LSU student nearly a year ago.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported Janneh Trench, 36, of Vacherie, was arrested early Monday morning in Clayton, Georgia by US marshals and deputies with the Clayton County Sheriff's Office.

He is suspected in the death of Eric Fabre, 20, which happened on June 20, 2014. Trench is currently awaiting extradition back to Louisiana. He will be booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of negligent homicide, felony hit and run, reckless operation, obstruction of justice, operating a vehicle while under suspension and arson.

Homicide investigators said Trench fled the scene after the crash and drove to an abandoned lot in the 2500 block of Erie Street, where he then attempted to burn the red 2007 Chrysler 300, which he was reportedly driving, to destroy any evidence from the crash. Investigators found the burned out vehicle hours after the crash.

Police said Trench rear-ended Fabre while he was riding his motorized scooter on Airline Highway at Old Hammond Highway in Baton Rouge, which is right by the Hammond Aire Shopping Center, just before 1 a.m.

Fabre was an LSU student who was working at Plucker's on Nicholson Drive. He had been an employee there for three years.
