GRETNA, La. (AP) — A Louisiana jury has convicted a 23-year-old man in a bloody 2017 quadruple murder at an apartment complex in suburban New Orleans.
After just over two hours of deliberations, a Jefferson Parish jury Thursday found Armande Tart guilty of three counts of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder.
Tart was convicted in the slayings of 61-year-old Rosemary Charles; Charles’ boyfriend, 56-year-old John Henry; and 40-year-old Kyle Turner inside Charles’ apartment in Metairie early March 15, 2017. The Times-Picayune/New Orleans Advocate reports Tart was also found guilty of stabbing and strangling 56-year-old Harold Frisard, who lived in the same complex.
Prosecutors say Tart committed the killings as part of a drug-related robbery.
