BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A 29-year-old Baton Rouge woman was arrested for a murder in St. Mary Parish Thursday, June 3, according to the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Andreniki Franklin was arrested for second-degree murder and obstruction of justice-tampering.

Deputies responded to a shooting early Saturday morning, May 30, 2020. Deputies discovered that a woman, identified as Karlnita Marks, 25, of Baldwin, had been shot and transported to a hospital. Marks later died as a result of the incident, according to police.
