Suspects in 2010 Addis murder to appear before WBR grand jury

Written by Aaron Williams on . Posted in Local

According to WBRSO Col. Richie Johnson, four people have been named suspects in what was called an “execution” of Addis resident, Corey Kitts, in July 2010.

The four suspects will go before a West Baton Rouge grand jury on March 5, according to the 23rd Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

Johnson, also an investigator for the District Attorney’s Office, said that the four suspects are:

Monique Oubre Kitts, 43, of 3123 River Landing Drive, Addis; David Johnson, 37, of 3748 Cherry Drive, Baker; Corey Knoxs, 28, of 7829 E. Poinsettia St., Baton Rouge; and Karl Howard, 29, of 2202 Tree Mountain Parkway, Stone Mountain, Ga.

A 2010 article in the West Side Journal newspaper reports that Kitts, 45, was found dead in his home on July 9, 2010, with three bullet wounds in the head area.

Addis Police Chief Ricky Anderson said, at the time, that Kitts appeared to have arrived home from his job between 5-6 a.m., and was asleep in his bed when he was shot at point-blank range, execution-style.

There was no sign of forced entry, struggle, or burglary of the home.

Reports show that Kitts’ wife and daughter called 9-1-1 when they returned home for lunch from their respective jobs.

Kitts’ wife at the time of the slaying was Monique Oubre Kitts, one of the suspects of the crime.

“She is the prime suspect,” Johnson said.

An investigation has been ongoing since 2010, and no arrests have been made so far in connection to Kitts’ death.

    I miss my brother dearly. Finally he will soon be able to rest in peace. He worked in someone else's place the night before so he could have the weekend off to throw a party for me. A Louisiana food party because I live in Minnesota. And instead, he gets murdered after working his night shift. So sad. I want to be in the court room when they are convicted. I love you Corey and I always think about the fun times we had when I would come home for the summer. The constant laughter from your jokes. I think of the jokes you shared and I still laugh so hard. Peace, and I know we will meet again someday. You were a good guy to so many of us.
