Kendall Allen and Dwayne Dede are charged with capital murder in the killing of Donald Williams. At this time, suspect Dede, 24, remains at large. Allen, 21, is in the custody of Louisiana law enforcement.
Police say on the evening of December 24, 2012, two or more black male suspects, one armed with a shotgun, ordered Williams and nearby witnesses to get on the ground during an attempted robbery outside an apartment complex at 16966 Northchase.
