Person of interest in quadruple homicide arrested

BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA (WLBT) - Officials say a man who was living in the home where four bodies were discovered last weekend has been arrested in Baton Rouge.

52-year-old Lee Roy Williams, Junior was taken into custody around three Thursday afternoon.

Police surrounded the suspect's vehicle near the Louisiana State University campus.

Williams reportedly tried to run over a deputy as he tried to drive off.

He is currently being held on a five-million-dollar bond.

Deputies had been searching for that S-U-V with a Lauderdale County Mississippi tag since the victims' bodies were discovered in a Lake Charles mobile home Saturday.

The Ford Explorer is registered to Williams and was last seen at the home.

He also faces unrelated drug charges.
