Baton Rouge Police have arrested and charged two men in the shooting death of 18-year-old Timothy Thomas. Thomas was gunned down at the Park East Apartments at 657 Sharp Lane on February 13th around 9 p.m.

According to arrest warrants, Tramion Catherine, 17, is charged with one count of 1st Degree Murder and Marchristerpher Corney, 18, is charged with one count of Principal to First Degree Murder. EBR Parish Prison booking records show both men were processed around 1:20 a.m. Saturday. Both are being held without bond.

BRPD spokesman Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said the two were arrested without incident at Corney's residence on Casa Loma Drive.

In the warrants detectives say Catherine and Corney arranged to meet Thomas behind a secluded area of the complex with the intent of robbing him. Catherine is accused of taking money and drugs from Thomas, and then shooting him several times when he attempted to flee. Catherine then ran to a getaway car in the parking lot where Corney was waiting, the warrant says.

A witness told investigators that the pair admitted to killing Thomas, and said he'd seen Catherine with a .45 caliber gun equipped with a scope and laser. Police found a gun matching that description at the scene, according to the warrant. The witness was also able to pick Catherine out of a photo lineup.

Catherine is accused of shooting another person on October 17, 2012  at the Chateau Deville Condominiums, located across the street from the Park East Apartments. The warrant says Corney was also present for that incident. According to prison records Catherine – who was 15 at the time – was arrested and charged with Attempted 2nd Degree Murder. He was out on bond at the time of the latest shooting.

In the October 2012 incident police said Catherine opened fire because the victim's dog attacked his cat. The unidentified victim was originally listed in critical condition but recovered.
