Woman accused in fatal Indiana shootings arrested in Texas

HOBART, Ind. (AP) – Authorities in Texas have arrested a woman who’s among six people accused in the fatal shootings of two Indiana brothers.

Police say 33-year-old Jeri Woods was arrested Monday after investigators learned she was hiding out at a hotel in Dallas. The (Munster) Times reports that she’s the last of six co-defendants, many of whom belong to the same family, to be arrested in the deaths of 18-year-old Arreon Lackey and 16-year-old Antonio Lackey.

Charges filed in September allege that the defendants forced the brothers out of a motel room June 26 and killed them on a wooded property in Hobart, Indiana. Woods is accused of carrying out the shooting.

Police say Woods was taken to a jail to await extradition to Indiana.

It wasn’t immediately known whether she has an attorney.
