NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

One of two teens accused of killing a Metairie father and son on April 22 went on a crime spree in the days leading up to the shooting, police said.

Dexter Allen, 17, will be arraigned Tuesday in Jefferson Parish on two counts of first-degree murder.

In Orleans Parish, he was booked with a carjacking that happened just hours before the murders, along with an attempted second-degree murder two days before that when he allegedly led U.S. marshals on a chase and nearly hit one of them.

His alleged accomplice, 18-year-old Haraquon Degruy, was arraigned early Monday morning. Deputies booked her with being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder and one count of vehicle burglary.

Jefferson Parish investigators arrested the pair Friday in a stolen SUV. Sheriff Newell Normand says the two threw evidence from the car that linked them to the murders of David and Nicholas Pence.
