New Albany murder suspect name released

Man arrested for Jan. New Albany shooting

NEW ALBANY (WHAS11) -- While searching for one shooting suspect, New Albany Police said they also arrested another suspect from a separate shooting.

Detectives said they found and arrested Deante Williams, AKA Deante Baker, in Louisville.

They had been searching for him since 20-year-old Richard Cozart Jr. was shot and killed in a car on Jan.18 on Erni Avenue.

Police believe the murder had something to do with drugs.

When police tracked down Cozart, they said they also found the person they were looking for in another January shooting.

That suspect's name is being withheld because he's a minor.
