Second arrest made in deputy homicide

Two indictments have been handed down instead of one in the death of Webster Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Sulyn Prince.

Andrew Critton, 40, was indicted this week, along with Jermaine Johnson, 35, both for second-degree murder.

Claiborne Parish District Attorney Danny Newell says the indictments were handed down Monday and Critton was arrested Tuesday. Johnson was arrested just hours after Price was reported missing.

Prince’s body was found in a shallow grave not far from her home in Homer Monday, Jan. 11, just hours after Homer Police were sent to her home on a welfare call.

Evidence at her home indicated foul play, Homer Police Chief Russell Mills said following Johnson’s arrest. A multi-agency effort led by Louisiana State Police uncovered evidence linking Johnson to Prince’s murder.

Facts of the case or how she died are not being released at this time. Johnson is registered as a Tier 3 sex offender, convicted of simple rape in April 2015 and is currently housed at the Claiborne Parish Detention Center on $1 million bond.

Prince was a master control operator for the parish jail.
