Funeral arrangements set for man who died in JPSO custody

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Funeral arrangements are set for the suspect who died in the custody of four Jefferson Parish deputies.

The announcement of the arrangements comes after the area NAACP called for the deputies to be arrested and booked with murder.

Deputies arrested Keeven Robinson last week in a back yard after a chase.

The deputies were taking part in an undercover drug investigation.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner ruled Robinson's death a homicide.

Robinson's funeral is set for Saturday morning at 9 a.m. at the Marine and Mount Moriah church in Jefferson.
