GRETNA, La. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a couple in the killing and dismemberment of a stripper in New Orleans’ French Quarter.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/1pQfcw7 ) reports that 30-year-old Margaret Sanchez, of Metairie, and 41-year-old Terry Speaks, who is in a federal prison in New York, each was charged Thursday with second-degree murder, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

They’re accused of inviting Jaren Lockhart to a private party on June 6, 2012. Police say Lockhart told co-workers at Temptations Gentlemen’s Club that she was leaving to “make rent.”

She died from a single stab wound to the chest. Her head, legs and arms below the elbows were cut off.

The body parts were discarded along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
