KENNER, LA (WLOX) -

The woman accused of murdering and dismembering Jaren Lockhart remains behind bars.

Margaret Sanchez is being held on a $750,000 bond. The 30-year-old is charged with second degree murder and obstruction of justice.

Kenner Police told WLOX News investigators are still working on the case against Terry Speaks. Sergeant Brian McGregor said Speaks will not be getting out of jail in New York in October because Louisiana has a hold on him for separate charges unrelated to Lockhart's murder.
