Suspect arrested in Clinton homicide case

CLINTON, LA (WAFB) - Authorities in East Feliciana Parish announced the arrest of a man in connection with two apparent homicides Monday afternoon.

31-year-old Eric Sanders was arrested as a suspect in the case.

A man and a woman were found dead a few miles east of Clinton on La-10 Sunday afternoon. A press release by Louisiana State Police stated that the victims were boyfriend and girlfriend, and that the suspect was allegedly the ex-husband of the female victim.

"We haven't had a murder here in a couple of years so anytime you hear about a homicide in East Feliciana or West Feliciana parish, our jurisdiction, it's just heart sinking," said East Feliciana Parish District Attorney Sam D'Aquilla.

The EFPSO is leading the investigation with help from Clinton Police and the State Crime Lab.
