Judge Holds Probable Cause Hearing In Case Of Dismembered New Orleans Dancer
AMITE, La. (AP) — A state district court judge has found probable cause to keep a woman — one of two suspects in the death and dismemberment of a New Orleans dancer — in custody on a count of harboring a sex offender.
The Advocate reports Tangipahoa Parish sheriff’s Detective Mike Moore testified Tuesday that Margaret Sanchez referred to alleged slaying accomplice Terry Christopher Speaks by two aliases the night of the couple’s arrest.
Moore testified that Sanchez told officers she knew Speaks had a history or a warrant in North Carolina.
The couple had been identified in a surveillance video leaving the Bourbon Street club where dancer Jaren Lockhart worked around 2 a.m. on June 6.
Lockhart’s remains floated ashore on several Mississippi beaches, beginning June 7 in Hancock County.
