NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a second person in connection to the death of a Jeanerette man.

Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal tells local media that 18-year-old Brady Rogers was arrested Thursday and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 75-year-old Howard Poche.

Another suspect, 23-year-old Jeffery Lee Marks, was arrested Wednesday and faces the same charge.

Poche was reported missing after he didn’t show up for church on Sunday. Poche’s body was found on Wednesday stuffed in a garbage can in the backyard of his Jeanerette home.

Investigators reportedly found a bloody knife and blood splatters in Poche’s home.

It’s unclear if Rogers or Marks have attorneys.
