SHREVEPORT, LA — Shreveport Police detectives have arrested a local man today and charged him with a brutal murder that occurred almost three years ago in west Shreveport.
Investigators obtained an arrest warrant late last week charging Jovonte Sanders, 22, of the 400 block of Lynbrook Boulevard in Shreveport, with one count of second degree murder in connection with the death of 47 year old Sherri Payton back on November 3, 2010 at a home in the 500 block of Lynbrook Boulevard. Sanders was subsequently taken into custody without incident this morning and booked into the Shreveport City Jail. His bond has been set at $500,000.
Investigators have been working the case ever since the night of the crime and, based on information and evidence gathered during the course of their inquiry, were able to develop Sanders as a suspect.
