Cheyenne Hayle Bigelow was arrested on March 8, and has been charged with two counts of murder, two counts of aggravated robbery, and possession of a controlled substance less than 4 grams.

When Johnny arrived to help, Ingram said Jerry somehow freed himself, and the two brothers began fighting with Laplace and Bigelow.
