NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Police say a suspect wanted in a Monday night double shooting at a New Orleans East apartment complex surrendered and faces on two counts of first-degree murder.

New Orleans police issued an arrest warrant Wednesday for 33-year-old Ahmad Rainey in the slayings of Daniel Millon and Vernon Lewis, both 24.

Rainey surrendered Thursday afternoon.

Police says the victims were found lying beside motorcycles inside the Hidden Lake Apartments.

Based on witness statements, police said Rainey’s girlfriend, 27-year-old Gilda Woodridge, allegedly helped him orchestrate the killings. Woodridge surrendered to police Wednesday.

She was booked on two counts of being a principal to first-degree murder.

Woodridge appeared Thursday in Magistrate Court. Her bail was set at $700,000.

Rainey is being held without bond.

Online jail records do not list attorneys for the couple.
