Police investigating double-homicide in Jennings

JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) -

Jennings Police are investigating the deaths of a Jennings couple found in a home on Seagraves Street in the city.

According to Jennings Police Chief Todd D'Albor, the victims have been identified as 30-year-old Katrenna Segura Williams and 25-year-old Charles Williams Jr.

D'Albor said the investigation is still in its early stages but he said foul play is suspected. The case is being investigated as a double-homicide.

A 4-year-old child was reportedly also inside the home, uninjured.

The bodies were found by family members on Sunday afternoon.

However, in a Monday interview with KPLC, D'Albor said authorities believe the killings happened Friday evening or Saturday morning.

He said based on evidence at the scene, authorities believe that more than one person was involved.

D'Albor said the bodies have been sent to the Calcasieu Parish Coroner's Office to determine the causes of death.

Those with information in the case are asked to call the department's tip line at 275-9002.

Authorities on Tuesday said there was no new information to report.

Funeral arrangements are being finalized for the couple.

The funerals will take place at 11 a.m. Saturday at Semien-Lewis Mortuary in Jennings. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
