Baton Rouge Police have arrested a man in the 2014 killing of West St. John High School coach Juan Joseph. Sgt. Don Coppola says they had originally booked another man for the murder, but those charges were later dropped after the DA's office said the shooter was misidentified. Coppola says now Jamarcus Goodman is charged with second degree murder.


"They were able to link him through DNA evidence," said Coppola.

Coppola says they believe Goodman was a passenger in a vehicle that had intentionally fired a weapon which struck and killed Joseph. He says investigators had been on the case exactly three years before they caught up with Goodman.
 
The murder happened on November 16th, 2014.
