Man arrested in 2007 shooting deaths

PORT ALLEN, La. (AP) Authorities have arrested a 42-year-old Baton Rouge man on two counts of first-degree murder nearly three years after the bodies of two shooting victims were found in a burning car parked behind a levee.

West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Mike Cazes says David Williams, who now faces prosecution in the double homicide, had been held in jail since his Aug. 11 arrest on a count of simple rape.

Detective Kevin Cyrus said Williams was arrested Thursday after investigators received Crime Stoppers tips implicating him in the shooting and burning slayings of 27-year-old Drexel Swayzer and 25-year-old Jamey Williams, both of Baton Rouge.

Cyrus tells The Advocate that investigators are looking for at least two more people believed to have been involved in the slayings.
