Suspects captured in the stabbing of a cab driver

Updated:

Gretna, La.- Jefferson Parish Deputies caught up with two suspects accused of stabbing a cab driver October 20th.

They've booked 20 year old Roxanne Brown and 17 year old Deshane Morton with attempted armed robbery, attempted second degree murder and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

The pair was caught on surveillance video at a west bank business shortly before the cab was called.

Deputies say the driver took them to the 1100 block of Whitney Avenue in Gretna.

That's where investigators say one of them pulled a gun and demanded money.

Deputies say as the driver struggled with that suspect, the other stabbed him repeatedly.

Both suspects have booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center.
