SLIDELL, La. (AP) - Authorities say a fourth person has been arrested in the death of a man who was killed during a fight near a Louisiana river.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office tells news outlets in a statement that 23-year-old Thomas Jones was arrested Tuesday in the death of 46-year-old Jeffery Howell. He died in the brawl Saturday on a West Pearl River sand bar.

The sheriff’s office says 20-year-old Blaine Manalle and 21-year-old Cameron Alphonso were charged with second-degree murder. Jones and 22-year-old Alden Kindergran were charged with disturbing the peace. Kindergran posted a $750 bond and was released from jail.

Jones’ bond was set at $350 for the disturbing the peace charge and $7,052 for an unrelated contempt of court warrant.

It is unclear if anyone accused has a lawyer.
