Dewayne Willie Watkins, 34, of Shreveport, was indicted Thursday by a Caddo Parish Grand Jury in connection with the kidnapping and slaying of a local couple who gave him a ride in November. 

Watkins faces two counts of first-degree murder, punishable upon conviction by life in prison or the death penalty.

He is accused of kidnapping and slaying of a Shreveport couple, Kelly Jose, 43, and Heather Jose, 32 on November 8, 2018.

The Joses were found inside a burned car in Shreveport’s Queensborough neighborhood. 

Watkins was later arrested in the 2600 block of Penick Street, two blocks from the burned car, after a nearly six-hour standoff with law-enforcement officers.
