New Orleans, La. - A man was arrested Wednesday in connection with the deaths of his former live-in girlfriend and her two adult children in Gentilly.
Shawn Peterson, 41, faces three counts of first-degree murder in the Sept. 11 deaths of 39-year-old Christine George; her 20-year-old daughter, Trisa George; and her 18-year-old son, Leonard George.
Peterson is the father of Leonard George.
The three were found shot to death just after 11 p.m. in the garage of their home in the 4400 block of Jeanne Marie Place. Christine George was a 911 dispatcher with the New Orleans Police Department.
Officers booked Peterson when he came to NOPD headquarters at 6:15 p.m. believing that detectives simply wanted to question him further about the shootings. He had been developed as a person of interest just hours after the killings, came in to speak to detectives the very next day. He gave a statement and left several hours later.
Investigators then checked all of the elements of his alibi and found that much of the information he provided didn't pan out. They also obtained additional evidence over the past few days that gave them reason to secure a warrant for his arrest.
Peterson has been previously arrested for first-degree murder, manslaughter, conspiracy to commit manslaughter, first-degree murder during a crime, attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery, attempted second-degree murder, domestic violence, simple kidnapping, simple battery, unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, felon in possession of a firearm, extortion, possession of crack and possession of marijuana.
Peterson is currently on parole until 2018 for attempted second-degree murder and possession of a firearm.
