HOUMA, La. -- Houma police have arrested another suspect in connection with the murder of a deacon last month.

Connely Duplantis, 66, was shot and killed while visiting his mother on Nov. 24.

Officers charged Leron Calloway with first-degree murder and armed robbery in the case. Police had been searching for him for nearly a week, but on Tuesday, they received a tip that he was hiding out in a trailer park.

Randy Wallace, 18, has also been booked in the case.

Police say they believe robbery to be the motive behind the killing.
