HOMER – Funeral arrangements have been set for the Webster Parish sheriff’s deputy whose body was found in a shallow grave near her home in Homer.

Visitation for Sulyn Prince, 68, will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church in Arcadia, the funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Sunday at the church.

The man accused in Prince’s death, 35-year-old Jermaine Johnson, remains in the Claiborne Parish Detention Center on a $1 million bond.

Johnson was arrested early Tuesday on a second-degree murder charge after local and state authorities scoured the area around Prince’s home Monday, finding evidence of foul play at her home.

Police went to check on Prince Monday morning when her daughter contacted authorities after she wasn’t able to contact her by phone.

Louisiana State Police investigators and forensic scientists with LSP were then called in to process the scene and later found her remains in a wooded area near home.

Prince was a master control operator at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
