The New Orleans Police Department has reportedly arrested a suspect in the killings of Joshua and Ryan “Rudy” Johnson, the brothers of Toya Wright.
The suspect, 31-year-old Antoine Edwards was arrested and booked March 9th. He was booked with second-degree murder.
According to Nola, the arrest warrant affidavit states that the NOPD received tips that a man who goes by “Toine” or “Tweezy” hold responsibility for the brothers’ deaths and that he, in one instance admitted to the crime.
Although the case is a double homicide, Antoine was only charged with one count of second-degree murder. Furthermore, the NOPD has not yet responded with a reason as to why that is.
His bond was set at $500k and he is due to appear back in court May 7th.
“Police said Joshua Johnson, 31, and Ryan Johnson, 24, were found dead at the scene, each with multiple gunshot wounds, inside a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox parked with its engine running in the 2800 block of Pauger Street.”
