As for how King was taken into custody, CBS4 reports that family members dialed 911 and alerted dispatchers to keep an eye out for him, since he might be suicidal. Shortly thereafter, the dark-colored SUV he'd been driving was spotted. After he was pulled over, officers are said to have "connected the dots" and realized he had been involved in the murders.
Our condolences to the friends, family and loved ones of Amanda Anders and Nancy Worrell. Here's a look at King's booking photo.Continue for our previous coverage of the double murder at the French Quarter apartments.
