Two arrested for conspiring to murder
Man and woman plot to kill the woman’s husband
A Haughton woman and her male friend from Bossier City were arrested Monday night for conspiring to murder the woman’s husband last weekend.
Cassie L. Sims, 31, of the 100 block of Jodie Drive in Haughton, and 43-year-old Patrick L. Pierce of the 5900 block of East Texas Street in Bossier City were taken into custody for devising a plan to murder Sims’s husband at the Jodie Drive residence Sunday morning.
Both Sims and Pierce admitted to detectives that they developed the plan in which Sims provided Pierce with a firearm and to come into the residence to murder her husband.
The two suspects concocted a scheme in which they would tie up Sims to make it look like a home invasion.
However, while attempting to carry out the plot, the husband managed to disarm Pierce, who then fled the residence.
Deputies were dispatched to the scene Sunday morning to work what was reported at the time as a possible burglary in progress. They soon found Pierce hiding in a Port-o-let in the parking lot of the park at Tall Timbers on Highway 80.
Further investigation and interrogation by detectives resulted in the actual murder scheme to which Sims and Pierce admitted to plotting.
Both suspects were transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking.
Sims has been charged with conspiracy to commit second degree murder, solicitation for murder, supplying a felon with a firearm and supplying a felon with ammunition.
Pierce was charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Bonds are pending.
