SHREVEPORT, LA (KMSS) — Accused murderer, 28-year-old Stacey Blount-Juneau, was in court Wednesday morning to be appointed a new lawyer for her second degree murder charge. Her new attorney is Richard Goorley.
Authorities believe she car jacked Rose Gonzales Coleman, 68, of Shreveport, at a local casino before kidnapping and murdering her. Her body was located on November 10 in an empty parking lot by Mansfield Studios.
During the course of the investigation, information was received from officials with the city of Natchitoches Police Department relative to a vehicle that was registered to a Shreveport address, but had been found abandoned in their jurisdiction. Evidence inside the car suggested that the vehicle may have been involved in a crime.
The vehicle, a late model Chrysler 300, was registered to Coleman. Natchitoches officials told Shreveport Police Department they had taken into custody a woman who had been seen with Coleman's vehicle earlier-- the same woman who would be arrested for committing a number of other criminal offenses.
No trial date has been set yet, but Blount-Juneau will be back in court April 15. She has waived her preliminary examination.
