JPSO arrests man for double murder in Metairie

FOX 8 received this news release from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Wednesday afternoon:

Sheriff Newell Normand announces the arrest of Melvin Miller, B/M,  20, of Baton Rouge,  for two counts of second degree murder.

 You may recall on February 14, 2013 JPSO deputies were called to 2209 Edenborn Apt. 3,  regarding two badly decomposed bodies inside the apartment. The two victims were Morris Williams (36) of Metairie  and Akeen Boudreaux (33) also of Metairie.

Investigators determined Williams' silver Pontiac was missing as well as a lap top computer and an I Phone.

On February 19, Detective Rhonda Goff got word of Baton Rouge Police  responding to a domestic call of a fight between a man and a woman.

The woman turns out to have been a transvestite, AKA "Jasmine." The man who fled the scene was Melvin Miller.

Miller was driving Morris Williams' stolen silver Pontiac.   Miller denied being in New Orleans during the estimated time of the murders. However, cell phone records placed Miller in the area where the murders occurred.   Detective Goff also learned Miller arrived in Baton Rouge driving Williams' car and had his possession the victim's computer and cell phone. Miller told Goff, he obtained the vehicle from an unknown black male in Baton Rouge.

Detective Goff got an arrest warrant for two counts of second degree murder. Miller was booked into the East Baton Rouge Jail on a parole violation immediately following the interview by Detective Goff.
